Since iRedAdmin-0.9.2 (open source edition), and iRedAdmin-Pro-SQL-3.0, iRedAdmin-Pro-LDAP-3.2, iRedAdmin or iRedAdmin-Pro is running as a standalone service named "iredadmin", each time you modified its config file, please restart the service ("iredadmin").

This tutorial describes how to update or migrate iRedAdmin (either open source edition or old iRedAdmin-Pro release) to the latest iRedAdmin release (again, either open source edition or iRedAdmin-Pro).


  1. The latest iRedAdmin-Pro always requires the latest iRedMail stable release, so you MUST upgrade iRedMail to the latest stable release before upgrading iRedAdmin-Pro.

  2. You MUST have iRedAdmin open source edition or old iRedAdmin-Pro release installed and running on your server before upgrading.

Download the latest iRedAdmin
