    Talking How to update properly?

    First of all, I absolutely applaud you on a very well built product. i have a fresh install of Z-Admin 1.3.1 final on an Ubuntu 12.04 lts 64 bit server. I installed z-admin using apt-get from the repositories. I also installed z-push in the same manor.
    My question is, what is the best practice for updating Z-Admin as new packages become available? Is it safe to simply make sure I have a database backup and use apt-get update, or is there a better method?

    Hi Rutman286,

    I'm glad that you like Z-Admin and the related software.

    Simply using the */latest/* repository URLs (and no version specific URLs) + running apt-get update/dist-upgrade can be used to keep your system up-to-date. Indeed, this is the officially supported way, which we thoroughly test before each release.

    Keeping backups around is always a good idea, no matter which software you are updating (for Z-Admin, database dumps and exported configs (through the web interface) would be useful).

    Kind regards,

    currently i'm using ./

    so for an dist-upgrade from Ubuntu 12.04 to 14.04 i should use
    instead of


    current system : ZARAFA 7.1.13 on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (x64) with Z-Admin
    user base : WIN 2008 R2 (x64) with ADS-plugin ...
    backups are overvalued ...
    restore is important ...

    Yes. I still have to emphasize that this is not a process which we test regularly. This means you should definitely have recent backups and be careful during the update.
