Let me explain my scenario first.
One of our clients wants to re-install their Zimbra server and upgrade the O.S and ZCS as well.
Old Server : Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Server
New Server : Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server
So far i have a good backup of the server and im trying to restore it to another server just as a test run.
I followed the instructions on
Moving ZCS to New Server - Zimbra :: Wiki
so anyway i put the dummy copy of zimbra onto the new server.
restore my zimbra backup
run the install.sh again.
Everything loads fine until it gets to
At this point it just hangs and does nothing...
If i kill this install, then try start mysql manually using
i checked permissions to /opt/zimbra/db
root@zimbra:/opt/zimbra/bin# ./mysql start
ERROR 2002 (HY000): Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/opt/zimbra/db/mysql.sock' (2)
they belong to the user zimbra on both servers...
My question is....can this upgrade be done?
If yes, what am i doing wrong?
