The official way

The official zarafa manual shows a very easy way to update.

Unfortunately thats the official way.
The way i walk (with RHEL 5) is not that easy.

The official way says basically this:

  • backup your data
  • rpm -Uvh every_single_rpm_in_your_zarafafolder.rpm
  • run the zarafa7-upgrade python script to update your database

Thats pretty much it. And that didn't work for me. The Packages didnt install because of some dependency troubles.

Here are my troubles and my solutions ;)

Dependendy shit

To avoid the dependency stuff i just uninstalled zarafa-6.4 completely.
First i used the from the zcp-6.4 download. Then i made sure that i removed every package regarding zarafa-6.4

rpm -e zarafa
rpm -e zarafa-indexer
rpm -e zarafa-dev
rpm -e zarafa-licensed
rpm -e zarafa-dev
rpm -e zwarafa-webaccess
rpm -e zarafa-webaccess
rpm -e zarafa-licensed
rpm -ezarafa-indexer
rpm -e zarafa-indexer
rpm -e zarafa-6.40.7-26119

After that i installed zcp-7.0 from scratch

cd zcp-7.0.0-27791-rhel-5-i386

Fine! We got zcp-7.0.0-27791 installed!


The Manual says that we need to run

python /usr/share/doc/zarafa/zarafa7-upgrade

Easy isn't it?
Nope… First we need to make sure that the mysqld python module is installed. I think i will try this:
Didn't work anyway… It seems that i have to install python-devel and the setuptools python module…. never ending story… to be continued

MAPI shit

The following error appeared when i tried to access my webmail:

Not Found: PHP mapi extension not found

It seems that i have to find a way to enable the module since the *.rpm installed just fine.
But not today, im fucking tired.
