    Default Upgrading from 4.5.4 to 4.5.5

    Is it not grabbing the original MySQL password? I have no idea how to fix this?

    Re-setting the zimbra mysql passwords back to "zimbra" to attempt to complete the upgrade.. Lets see if this works.

    If it does, I'll reset the passwords to something random afterwards.

    Resolved.

    Zimbra seemed to have overwrote my original zimbra_logger_mysql_password and zimbra_mysql_password with "zimbra".. Resetting the MySQL passwords (by logging into MySQL as the root user and updating the User table) to "zimbra" and allowing the upgrade to finish resolved it.. I have now since reset the passwords to something random.

    This was the least clean of my upgrades so far.

    Can someone from Zimbra comment on this issue? Even if this user has found a solution I don't like the idea of having to do a workaround during the upgrade process. I was planning on upgrading my installation tonight, but this thread has me a little gun shy. In my experience, up to this point the Zimbra upgrade process has been smooth as silk, and I'm hoping that continues to be the case.

    Mine have been clean up until now as well. I do not know if this was an issue specific to me or a general upgrade issue. this is the 4.5.5 OSS on Mac OS 10.4.9 (PPC, not x86).

    It's been running for a few minutes just fine now.

    Yeah, I guess it could be something specific to your installation, or perhaps Mac OS X, which I am not running (I'm running the OSS on CentOS). Still, the upgrade process has been so easy that I've come to expect 10-15 minutes of downtime, with no issues. Of course I'll backup prior to upgrading, but I don't really want to take any chances. I'll wait until someone from Zimbra comments, or at the very least wait a few days to make sure others aren't seeing the same thing.

    I'm running this on an old G5... was quite fast when I purchased the machine, but now it's pretty slow... I may attempt to transition over to Ubuntu in the near future.. however, I have Mac OS setup as my Primary Domain Controller, so it's nice keeping it all at one machine.. but the more mail that comes in, the more the machine feels it. *sniff*

    I just ran an upgrade from 4.5.4 to 4.5.5 on a RHEL 4 Update 5 box. Was smooth as a babies bottom.

    It did identify RHEL 4 Update 5 as RHEL 5 and presented a warning:

    This platform is RHEL5
    Packages found: zimbra-core-4.5.5_GA_832.RHEL4-20070501151038.i386.rpm
    This may or may not work


    Install anyway? [N] Y

    Just clicked install anyway and it did its thing...

    Currently, there is no known issue.
    It may be specific to Krishopper's server.

    I must admit, the binary daemons do love me specifically today *sigh*

    things are still running well for me since that hiccup. No complaints. It was probably a me-specific issue, but I worked around it and everything is happy now.
