Default Problem on upgrade SquirrelMail

Hi folks,

Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64
Postfix 2.3.8
SquirrelMail version 1.4.11

I'm prepared following;

4. Upgrading SquirrelMail

to upgrade SquirrelMail to version "SquirrelMail version 1.4.13"

I can't upgrade it on repo because I installed SM on tarball sometimes ago. However I don't know which directory/directories I have to backup. The Maildirs are on;

# ls /home
user1	user2	user3	user3	user4	ftp	etc.

# ls /home/user1/

# ls /home/user1/Maildir/
courierimapkeywords  courierimapsubscribed  courierimapuiddb  cur  new  tmp

# ls /home/ftp/

# find / -name squirrelmail -type d

# ls /usr/local/squirrelmail/
data  temp  www
data and temp are empty directories

# ls /usr/local/squirrelmail/www/
AUTHORS    configure  doc        include    plugins       src
ChangeLog  contrib    functions  index.php  po            themes
class      COPYING    help       INSTALL    README        UPGRADE
config     data       images     locale     ReleaseNotes

# ls /var/local/squirrelmail/
attach  data
attach is empty directory

data directory containing users' .abook .pref

# ls /etc/squirrelmail/
apache.conf         config_local.php  default_pref       index.php
config_default.php  config.php        filters_setup.php  sqspell_config.php

Previously by mistake I have another set of users on
# ls /var/mail/
user1	user2	user3	user4	etc.	Maildir
They are doc files not directories. All incoming mails were added to the respective users' doc. How the mistake was made is unknown to me.

After adding following lines
on /etc/procmailrc

All incoming mails are delivered to users' Maildir on /home/user1 /home/user2 etc. Those users' doc files are still there but not used anymore.

Now which directory/directories I have to backup? Whether I still can follow the document "Upgrading SquirrelMail". Please help. TIA

You don't have to back up the mail boxes for a SquirrelMail upgrade.

I'd just back up /usr/local/squirrelmail and /etc/squirrelmail.
