    Default [SOLVED] Backup 4.5.x useable for 5.0.1

    Hi everybody,

    i want to move from 4.5.x to 5.0.1. and change the Hardware and Linux-Distribution with this step.

    Is it possible to setup a new 5.0.1 Server and restore the old 4.5.x Backups i made?

    Thanks in advance,

    Martin

    No it's not.

    You should upgrade before or after the server change...

    Either :
    • upgrade to 5.0.1, do a full backup, install new hardware, install Zimbra 5.0.1 on new hardware, restore full backup
    or :
    • do a full backup (4.5.x), install new hardware, install Zimbra 4.5.x (the very same version than old hardware), restore previous backup, upgrade to 5.0.1, do a full backup
