upgrade from 8.8.9 GA Network to 8.8.15

Postby yellowhousejake » Wed Mar 18, 2020 7:14 pm

Good day,

Currently we are running 8.8.9 GA Network on Ubuntu 16. We need to upgrade to 8.8.15 to gain Zimbra Connect. We are a municipality and will very likely begin sending people home within a few days. We would like to have Zimbra Connect so that we can keep as many people working as possible, even if from home.

- Looking through the previous posts it appears most of the upgrade issues have been resolved by patch 6.
- I have not found any upgrade instructions as I have previously seen in the wiki, etc. It appears we simply unpack the file, backup /opt/zimbra, and run the installer. Is it that simple now?
- I have always made fresh installs and migrated servers when moving versions, I do not have the luxury or time now, any assistance or advice would be appreciated.

From my experience, yes.

That would be good news indeed. We have a price request to add Zimbra Connect to our license once we are upgraded.

No words of advice, caveats, gotchas, from anyone?

Thanks for the quick response.

Just a confirmation, I have just completed upgrading from 8.8.11 OSE to 8.8.15 P8 OSE without issues.
