    Default zimbra is not starting after a wacky upgrade/downgrade

    Hi,
    Ok, I have done some several bad things things.
    First, I have upgraded from 3.1.4 to 4.0.0 GA, the first thing that i noticed was an error regarding document initialization. I did not mind it first, I first recreate my certificates because i noticed it was already expired. The upgrade is somewhat ok, the only thing that is not working is the document feature.
    I dont know what came into me, I downgrade from 4.0.0 to 3.1.4, and normally, it said cant upgrade to 3.1.4, so I install 4.0.0 again, it seems ok, it finished, but zimbra is not starting anymore, it just stalls.
    I dont see anything in the logs that can give me any hint:

    startup.log only shows:
    Starting ldap...Done.

    and that's it.

    Is there anything that i can do to at least recover the messages?
    Zimbra version used is is opensourced version.


    TIA,
    Keanne

    I suppose the first question we all here in zimworld will have for you is:
    Do you have a backup???

    This forum is littered with the scattered skeletons of those who didn't have a backup.

    zmmtaconfig isn't rewriting the config files properly, for whatever reason.

    darn... first of all, yes i dont have a backup.
    is it possible for me to install a zimbra on a different machine,
    create the accounts to that machine and just copy or sync the messages
    from the non working zimbra box to a new zimbra box?



    TIA,
    Keanne
