Good day!
I have my new iRedmail Server version 0.9.9 and Mysql 5.7 and it is working fine.I created two email addresses and both are receiving test emails vise versa.

I am going to migrate my old (Production email Server) iRedmail Server version 0.3.3 from iRedAdmin dashboard and 0.8.7 from /etc/iredmail-release and  Mysql version is 5.5 to my New iRedMail Server v0.9.9.

1st - MySQL Restoration - Which database im going to restore? except mysql.sql - Do not restore as per migration tutorial from old iRedMail.

2nd - Do i have to update the structure from mysql 5.5 to mysql 5.7?

3rd - Why i cant access mysql via workbench even if i tried to grant access for root using % instead of localhost? is there any workaround?

Please help me.
TIA

There're many SQL structure changes since iRedMail-0.8.7, you'd better upgrade this server to the latest iRedMail-0.9.9 first. Or, dump the whole "vmail" database to a testing server and upgrade the SQL structure (on testing server), then export it to new server.

Re: IredMail and MySQL restoration

The most important database is "vmail", it stores mail domains and accounts.

Re: IredMail and MySQL restoration

Seems you're running OpenLDAP backend.

We have tutorial for you: https://docs.iredmail.org/migrate.to.ne … erver.html

From OpenLDAP to SQL? You need to write some shell/python/perl/php/... script to convert the LDAP LDIF data to SQL commands. Unfortunately we don't have such script yet.

Re: IredMail and MySQL restoration

Hi Zhang,

Just want to clear everything.

My old mail server is using OpenLDAP backend and same with my new Setup Mail Server.

You mean, it is difficult for us to migrate our email to new Server?

Thanks,

If it's same backend, then it's easy. Just dump LDIF data with "slapcat" on old server, then import it with "slapadd" on new server.

Note: if your old server runs an old iRedMail release, you need to follow our upgrade tutorials to add missing LDAP attribute/value pairs, otherwise your mail accounts may not working well.
