    Question 4.5 upgrade woes on a mac server

    ----start of edit---
    *Note was originally in
    So it is assumed you have not changed os's on the zimbra box.
    But this is a different person's upgrade; they had unbuntu, whereas you are on a mac server, so moved to this new thread.
    ---end of edit---

    I am on a Mac (10.4.9) and had 4.0.something running fine. Finally decided to take the plunge and upgrade to 4.5. Everything seemed normal, but after the upgrade, when I go to the admin page or a user signin page, I get the splash screen, but no login/password boxes.

    Not being one to fool around, I figured I would uninstall and just do a clean install of 4.5. Unfortunately, when I do that, the install script gives me this:

    G4-Server:/opt root# /opt/zimbra/libexec/
    Operations logged to /tmp/zmsetup.log.5104
    Checking java version...1.5 found
    Starting ldap...Done
    ERROR: service.FAILURE (system failure: getDirectContext) (cause: javax.naming.CommunicationException localhost:389)
    Setting defaults...Done
    Setting defaults from existing config...Warning: null valued key 'mysql_logger_root_password'
    Upgrading from to 4.5.5_GA_838
    Stopping zimbra services
    Stop failed - exiting
    UPGRADE FAILED - exiting
    G4-Server:/opt root#

    No clue what to do from here. Anyone know the magic?
