I am basically in BIG trouble here... I was running the 7.1.1 Community Edition on Centos 5.9 and wanted to upgrade to current version. The upgrade seem to be running fine and the failed because of the Perl issue with Perl 5.8... Anyways, that behind me!! Because the install had partially made, it of course meant I could not just go back.
I backup the /opt/zimbra directory using rsync and rsnapshot DAILY so I thought I could just go to my backup from the night before. OK, but my directory was close to 150GB.
I've now been up for close to 40 hours trying to get this done and am dead tired! After restoring my /opt/zimbra directory, my ldap service won't start! I tried a reinstall too and that complained about my LDAP passwords (all of them) so I know that it is an OpenLDAP issue with not restarting.
I am NOT familiar with the ins and outs of OpenLDAP.
Here is the tail-end of my install log...

I am sure that someone who knows the ins and outs of Zimbra and OpenLDAP can solve this but that unfortunately is not me... I can let an expert login to my machine and I will compensate for your time. I have nothing to loose at this point. I'm letting a lot of people down. Mostly friends and "freebies" but nonetheless embarrasing.
