Zimbra Next Generation Modules/Things To Know Before Upgrading
Upgrading from version between 8.0 to 8.6
Upgrading to 8.8 is supported but there are a number of items you need to be aware of:
- 8.8 requires the installation of the proxy server on all setups. In most cases a single server installation does not have proxy installed and configured. You run the following command to see if proxy is installed and enable.
[zimbra@Server ~]$ zmprov gs `zmhostname` |grep zimbraService |grep proxy zimbraServiceEnabled: proxy zimbraServiceInstalled: proxy
If proxy shows as installed and enabled then proxy is running within your system. If not, then you will need to enable proxy by following the Enabling Zimbra Proxy and memcached wiki.
Upgrading from version between 6.0.8 to 7.2.x
In most cases, Zimbra Support recommends doing a migration to new system
