Re: moving cyrus imap




For my home IMAP server I did the following.  I use saslauthd and mech
PLAIN.  Your auth method may require more.

Backup:

        /etc/imapd.conf
        /etc/cyrus.conf
        /var/lib/imap
        /var/spool/imap
        /etc/mail

If the new box is running a different version of DB then you will need
to convert the old database info to the new format.  See:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=160317

for details of the conversion (specifically Comment #7).

Make sure cyrus-imapd, saslauthd and sendmail are not running before
restoring the above files.  Start those services when the restore is
complete

Thanks Bob. Actually I hate doing this (mail)  because I forget everything until I have maintenance to do.  I've got cyrus+postfix with Web-cyradm. How can I check the version of the DB?  I'll also need to move all my MySQL databases is that just as easy?
