I am really getting annoyed with this...
I installed 7.1.1 on ubuntu 10.4
tested it, it worked.
I followed the Network Edition: Moving from 32-bit to 64-bit Server - Zimbra :: Wiki (which I think might be outdated)
I am giving up on zimbra for a week I need a holiday, this was my 5th attempt to get it running
I even tried the migrate accounts, but for some reason I was not able to connect through ldap on the old server...which I think had to do with both servers have the same name...I tried the server rename thing too to no avail...after the server name change I could not log into the admin console..the logon page appeared but would not go to the next page. but I digress.

Are there better instructions, ones that work, to go from 6.08 32-bit to 7.1.1 64-bit?
I will attempt one more time before I need to make a decision on plan b
