    Default [SOLVED] problem taking opensource backup

    hi.. am new at this ... please help
    have tried out the following backup script but keep getting errors

    {{#!/bin/bash

    # Zimbra Backup Script
    # Live sync before stopping Zimbra to minimize sync time with the services down
    # Comment out the following line if you want to try single cold-sync only
    rsync -avHK /opt/zimbra/ /backup/zimbra

    # Stop Zimbra Services
    sudo -u zimbra /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcontrol stop
    sleep 15

    # Sync to backup directory
    rsync -avHK /opt/zimbra/ /backup/zimbra

    # Restart Zimbra Services
    sudo -u zimbra /opt/zimbra/bin/zmcontrol start

    # Create archive of backed-up directory for offsite transfer
    # cd /backup/zimbra
    tar -zcvf /tmp/mail.backup.gz -C /backup/zimbra .

    # Transfer file to backup server
    ncftpput -u <username> -p <password> <ftpserver> /<desired dest. directory> /tmp/mail.backup.gz
    }}

    this worked...

    {{{su - zimbra
    zmcontrol stop
    switch back to root
    ps aux | grep zimbra (kill -9 pid# of any remaining)
    mkdir /zcsbackup
    rsync -avHK /opt/zimbra/ /zcsbackup/zimbra
    mkdir /zcsbackuptars
    tar -zcvf /zcsbackuptars/backup.zimbra.version.date.time.tar.gz -c /zcsbackup/zimbra .
    su - zimbra
    zmcontrol start }}

    how exactly would the restore work?? what commands??

    I guess, re-installation is required when u r moving to a new server, that re-installation with -s will only update some databases or RPMs.
    then u can delete the installation new one, and can restore the zimbra.
