We are running Zimbra on Fedora Core 6 for our 5 person office. We've been using it since January and everyone has been very happy with Zimbra.
This weekend I went to upgrade from the zcs-4.0.4_GA_457.FC5.tgz version that we were running to the current zcs-4.5.3_GA_733.FC5.tgz version.
I backed up /opt/zimbra, ran the install.sh for the new version and wallah, I had the new version up and going in about 10 min.
I should have stopped there :-)
Then I ran updates on the server and when the updates were finished, Zimbra wouldn't run at all any longer... I assumed that the update had overwritten some package with a bad version, so I reinstalled 4.5.3, no joy.
I reverted to my backup by copying it back to /opt/zimbra and rebooting... That mostly worked but some perms and ownerships were wrong, so looked this up here in the forums and tried reinstalling the original version as an upgrade on top of the backup (not sure if should have just tried zmfixperms). That fixed everything and we are back up, but the install failed when it said that I was already on ver 4.5.3 and that I could not do an upgrade of 4.0.4 over that.
Do I do the 4.0 .4 install over again, or is there another way to reset the reported version to the right one so I can try the 4.5 upgrade again? Or is that not an issue and shold i just go to 4.5.3?
Also, does anyone know when FC6 will be supported?
