Sometimes you will find errors due to changing of permissions to files or folders under the Zimbra directory /opt/zimbra/. To fix this problem, run the zmfixperms command.


Confirm that all permissions are correct on the new server: 1. As root, run the zmfixperms command to repair any potential permissions problems with files under /opt/zimbra:


2. If you need to check /opt/zimbra/store and /opt/zimbra/index as well, you will need to use the -extended option. This will take much longer to run - potentially several hours in large environments - so run it only if necessary. Run this command as root:

 /opt/zimbra/libexec/zmfixperms -extended
