    Exclamation [SOLVED] How to upgrade from 5.01 to current?

    Our monthly maintenance schedule is coming up and i notice we are behind in version for zimbra opensource.

    How would i go about uprading to the newer version. I downloaded the latest install.

    I am currently running CentOS 5.

    I searched the forums and google and couldn't find info on how to do this.

    Thank you for your responses.

    1) Take a backup
    2) Take another just in case
    3) ./install.sh --platform-override

    thanks will try that out on Sunday. The nice thing i think is that we run this on a VMWARE. We do back it up every night and i also will take a snap shot. Does that make sense? Also for snap shot does the zimbra service need to be down?

    I'm assuming the --platform-override is the command to tell it to update the files?

    Really the answer is yes otherwise a transaction(email) could be in a transient state

    No, it is because CentOS is not a officially supported platform
