    Hi folks,


    Ubuntu 7.04 server amd64
    Postfix 2.3.8
    SquirrelMail version 1.4.11


    I'm prepared following;

    4. Upgrading SquirrelMail
    http://squirrelmail.org/docs/admin/admin-4.html#ss4.1

    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
    Code:
    user1	user2	user3	user3	user4	ftp	etc.
    

    # ls /home/user1/
    Code:
    Maildir
    

    # ls /home/user1/Maildir/
    Code:
    courierimapkeywords  courierimapsubscribed  courierimapuiddb  cur  new  tmp
    
    etc.


    # ls /home/ftp/
    Code:
    welcome.msg
    

    # find / -name squirrelmail -type d
    Code:
    /usr/local/squirrelmail
    /var/local/squirrelmail
    /etc/squirrelmail
    

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


    # ls /usr/local/squirrelmail/www/
    Code:
    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/
    Code:
    attach  data
    
    attach is empty directory


    data directory containing users' .abook .pref


    # ls /etc/squirrelmail/
    Code:
    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/
    Code:
    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
    Code:
    DROPPRIVS=YES
    ORGMAIL=$HOME/Maildir/
    DEFAULT=$ORGMAIL
    
    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.
