Without thinking, I went and upgraded my Ubuntu server that runs mail-in-a-box to 20.04. It still works, but I can no longer run any updates for Mail-in-a-box. I am trying to backup and restore my current data to a new Ubuntu Server 18.04 but I keep getting errors when doing so. Please help. I can’t get things to copy or run when using the privileges that are native, so when I open it up with a chmod 777 then I get other error messages. I am happy to start completely over with a fresh install of Ubuntu if that is what it takes to get things going. I am honestly stuck. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
