Updating Open-Xchange Server packages

This article describes how to update Open-Xchange Server packages from one service pack to another.

What is written here only applies to Open-Xchange Server Service Pack levels SP4 and newer!

What Service Pack do I have installed?

The service pack can be determined in checking the version number of the open-xchange package. The second digit relates to the SP version. The following table shows a list of package versions and the corresponding SP number:

Package version SP Version
6.4 SP3
6.6 SP4
6.8 SP5

If the second digit is an odd number (e.g. 6.3, 6.5 or 6.7), you have a beta or snapshot version installed.

How to determine the version number?

On Debian based distributions


$ dpkg -l open-xchange

The following output should appear:

| Status=Not/Installed/Config-files/Unpacked/Failed-config/Half-installed
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name               Version            Description
ii  open-xchange       6.7.0-1            Open-Xchange server scripts and configuration

On RPM based distributions


$ rpm -q open-xchange
