    Default Is Downgrade possible?

    Hi. I'm currently running the M3-381 Dev build and having a much rougher go of it than I was with M3-346. Is it possible to use the 346 installer to "upgrade" back to 346?

    Thanks,
    will

    Default downgrades

    In general, downgrade isn't supported. Looking at the upgrade script, the downgrade in this specific case MIGHT work - but I couldn't guarantee it. (And don't recommend it).


    What problems are you seeing? We're working on getting a release out today, which may address your concerns.

    The problems surround rendering of incoming mail messages (mostly) and general interface corruption (a little). If you've got a new release coming out today-ish, I'll wait for it rather than trying to strong-arm the install script into doing something it wasn't ment to.

    Thanks,
    Will

    I'm interested in the way to downgrade.
    I think of the case where I've upgraded Zimbra and then it isn't stable anymore ...
    What can I do to recover the last configuation ?
    Have you created tools to get back ???

    Did you make a backup of the /opt/zimbra directory before you upgraded? If you did that and had a copy of the version of Zimbra you wanted to use then you could just reinstall that but you may obviously lose some email.

    AFAIK, there are no tools to downgrade Zimbra. Why is it you want to do that?

    Yeah, your best bet is to just create a backup before you restore.

    There is info in the wiki that describes how to do this.

    Also, Release 3.1.3 just came out today, so you may want to check it out if you're having stability issues.

    To my knowledge, there havn't really ever been any stability issues with Zimbra.
    All issues were either server OS or Configuration.

    Are you saying you're having stability issues now?
