Re-install hMailServer

Post by Luket » 2018-09-09 09:43

Assuming I have a problem with a file I'm not able to solve, I wish to try to re-install hMailServer from scratch.

Is there a guide to follow to install again hMailServer and not lose Database content, e-mails and configuration ?

Regards, L.

Run internal backup ticking EVERY tick box.

Copy save your eventhandlers script (if it has been customised)

Uninstall via program manager.

(Delete the program directory if you want to be sure)

Reinstall as new

Internal restore from backup.

Restore eventhandlers if needed.

Relocate your ssl certificates in the settings.

Restart the service.

All of that assumes you data is not too big for the internal backup (you will find out when you run it but don't worry there are solutions).

Thank you very much.

The procedure is also valid for installations using MySQL DB ?
