Upgrading to v0.30 from v0.29


So, I’m trying to upgrading my MIAB setup from 0.29 to 0.30 along with Ubuntu 18.04 since v0.30 is compatible with 18.04.

My question is how should I proceed?

First I should upgrade my server to 18.04 from 14.04, then reinstall the MIAB?


Version 0.30 is NOT compatible with Ubuntu 18.04. That’s still coming.


Oh… I thought it is because of the description on Github.


It appears that the changelog for both branches was updated … the information that you are seeing should only be for the ubuntu_bionic branch at this time. That branch is still in beta, soon to be released as the production branch for MiaB. You can find details elsewhere on the forum if you wish to use that beta, @Dibbyo456



it looks like I am on the master branch but I can’t upgrade since I am supposed to be on 18.04. @JoshData is this right ?

root@box:~/mailinabox# git branch

  • master

root@box:~/mailinabox# mailinabox
Mail-in-a-Box only supports being installed on Ubuntu 18.04, sorry. You are running:

Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS

We can’t write scripts that run on every possible setup, sorry.


The local branch name is generally always master.

If you’re on Ubuntu 14.04, you can upgrade to v0.30 (which I posted this morning). It’s a tag. You can also follow the usual upgrade steps (I think).

The master branch on github is now beyond v0.30.
