(Solved) Update Issue


After an update from core- to core-, i get the following error “WARNING: Database version (8,4,90,2153382282,66) is newer than the server version (8,4,90,2153381888,66)” in server.log!
The core- ist the last Paket from 13.10.2017
There is no new update.
Any Ideas?

thx Sinux

Hello @Sinux ,

the easiest thing is to simply delete the offending higher version from the versions table in the database.

Hi fbartels,

thank you, I try it once but how can such a thing happen?



here my Bash History from Linux Terminal and Mysql console ;)

First Backup
mysqldump -u root -p zarafa > kopano.sql

mysql -u root -p
USE zarafa;
SHOW FIELDS FROM versions; (Overview=Überblick ;)
SELECT * FROM versions;
DELETE FROM versions WHERE revision=‘2153382282’;
service kopano-server start
service kopano-server status

  • kopano-server is running


Warum auch immer das passiert ist es funktioniert jetzt endlich wieder.


Hello @sinux ,

I’m wondering if this could be a side effect of https://jira.kopano.io/browse/KC-839. I have created https://jira.kopano.io/browse/KC-859 to investigate a bit further.

Hi fbartels,

thank you, I made a migration from Yaffas (7.1) to Kopano 8.3 some time ago.
After that the nighlybuild updates ran without problem, until now ;)


Small update: the fix that is associated with https://jira.kopano.io/browse/KC-859 is included in the latest nightly, so the messages about old database revisions should now be gone.

Thank You fbartels,

Stupid question, how can I mark the fred as solved?

We don’t really work that way here, but if you really want to you can mark your initial post as a question (from the “topic tools”) and then could select one of the replies as “the answer”.

Thanks, then I leave it like that

I’m using kopano-server:amd64 (on Ubuntu 16.04) and get the following message when starting it.

Sun Sep 10 16:23:53 2017: [ notice] Starting server version 8,4,0,644, pid 20894
Sun Dec 3 14:29:02 2017: [ notice] Starting kopano-server version 8.4.90 (pid 996)

Sun Dec 3 14:29:02 2017: [warning] You can force the server to start with --ignore-database-version-conflict

I’m not quite sure what I’ve updated from (might either have been 8.4.0~644-137.1 or…

I’ve changed
ExecStart=/usr/sbin/kopano-server -F --ignore-database-version-conflict
to get it to start for now. Still strange, since I’m pretty sure I did not downgrade ?!?

I’ve now updated another server which was previously on 8.3.0~1042 and this one did not have the database problem.
