Upgrade Zarafa 7.1 Beta (build 33926) to Zarafa 7.1 RC1 (build 35476)

A couple of days ago Zarafa released its first release candidate 7.1.0rc1. You can download it over here. If you followed my previous tutorial on “how to install Zarafa on Ubuntu 12.04″, you know it is time to upgrade.

You can review the change log over here:

How to upgrade it, isn’t described. Luckily for us, it isn’t that difficult.

Download the latest version:

wget http://download.zarafa.com/community/beta/7.1/7.1.0rc1-35476/zcp-7.1.0rc1-35476-ubuntu-12.04-x86_64-free.tar.gz

Unpack it:

tar -xvf zcp-7.1.0rc1-35476-ubuntu-12.04-x86_64-free.tar.gz

Change directory:

cd zcp-7.1.0rc1-35476-ubuntu-12.04-x86_64/

Install the software:

dpkg -i *.deb


Zarafa will try to push new configuration files. This might overwrite your current Zarafa installation and configuration. This is pretty dangerous. I reviewed most of the configuration files during the installation (using the Difference option), and I can confirm that there are no changes that might create an issue. This means that there is no reason to upgrade you configuration files and that you are safe to keep your currently-installed version

Configuration file `/etc/zarafa/server.cfg’
==> Modified (by you or by a script) since installation.
==> Package distributor has shipped an updated version.
What would you like to do about it ?  Your options are:
Y or I  : install the package maintainer’s version
N or O  : keep your currently-installed version
D     : show the differences between the versions
Z     : start a shell to examine the situation
The default action is to keep your current version.
*** server.cfg (Y/I/N/O/D/Z) [default=N] ? D

Restart Apache:

service apache2 reload

Your server should be up and running again. Don’t forget to upgrade your Ubuntu as well and perhaps reboot the complete server.
