    Default upgrade to 4.0.3 just trashed my install (without a backup)

    I just can't believe what I saw on the screen, but the zimbra install just deleted /opt/zimbra without so much as a warning!

    Just to add, the zimbra user ran a backup each night and these were in /opt/zimbra - which got deleted by the installer!

    I have a backup, but it be old'ish so we lost plenty email on my home server but I am just astounded how this could happen soooo easily on an upgrade.

    I simply ran the upgrade from
    zcs-4.0.2_GA_362.FC4.tgz -> zcs-4.0.3_GA_406.FC4.tgz

    upgrades always work so seemlessly, but the core package did nto install, no error etc so I just tried again, 2nd time is just wiped the /opt/zimbra

    I am now without a zimbra that installs and also without any email for the last 2 months. (no backup my fault, deleteing the /opt/zimbra - well...)

    Here is what hapened:

    [root@gw zcs]# ./install.sh
