    Welcome to the forums.

    You'll find details in the forums and the wiki on migrating to a new server/operating system, please search as it's been described many times.

    You basically need to install the same version of Zimbra on the new machine, copy the /opt/zimbra directory to the new server then run an upgrade of the same version of Zimbra on the new server - if that works you should run an upgrade to a new release of Zimbra. All the details you need are in the forums. That assumes your new server will have the same hostname and IP address as the original. Obviously take backups of your Zimbra server.
    Regards

    Welcome to the forums,
    You could post your errors but you might as well do the prescribed method.

    UnInstall Zimbra - Zimbra :: Wiki Then you can find the previous versions here: /products/downloads_previous.html

    See: /blog/archives/2007/10/moving_zcs_to_another_server.html (and don't forget the UID matching tip at the bottom)

    There are other methods of using the backups to do so if your an NE customer: /docs/ne/latest/administration_guide/10_Backup_Restore.13.1.html#1079525
