Thread: Zimbra backup (with DB, LDAP, etc) - is /opt directory enough to a full backup?

    Default Zimbra backup (with DB, LDAP, etc) - is /opt directory enough to a full backup?

    Hi Everyone.

    Is that enough to make a full Zimbra system backup - including emails - make a copy of /opt/zimbra directory?

    I know I have to shutdown the service.

    My big concern is if that procedure will contemplate database data (MySQL, LDAP, etc) and user's email.

    I've seen a lot of script in the Internet, but that seems only for the zimbra application.

    Could someone indicates me a good one?

    Assuming you are talking about Zimbra OSS Version:
    please follow any of the method which works to your liking from the wiki
    Open Source Edition Backup Procedure - Zimbra :: Wiki

    * best backup is which you can when you choose a method please make sure you know its works and it restores you 100%

    Yes..taking a COLD BACKUP of everything (given the fact you do it right) in /opt/zimbra folder will give you 100% good backup
