Download Locations

SME Server (and many add-ons) can be downloaded from one of our download locations. These download locations (Mirrors) have generously been provided by our mirror partners. Additional information on how to become a mirror partner and the status of current mirrors is available here.

A big thank to all of our sponsors for the mirrors.

For a full list of our download mirrors see our download locations.

Please always verify your download against the provided checksums (md5 or sha1) in the respective ISO directories.

iso

To download an iso select the closest mirror, the version of SME Server you want, then the iso directory and finally the i386 or the x86_64 directory. Note that in each repo, there are two ISO images. One is named according to the released version (i.e smeserver-8.0-i386.iso), the other does not provide version information (i.e. smeserver-i386.iso). The non version ISO is the actual file and facilitates rsync updates for the mirrors. The versioned iso is actually a symlink to the non-versioned ISO so people know what version they are downloading. Both will download the same binary data to your computer.

Updates

For upgrade to SME 9.x from SME 8.2 or 7.6 see http://wiki.contribs.org/SME_Server:9.0#Upgrade_Notes

Upgrading to 8.x from 7.x - Upgrades from unmodified versions of SME 7.x to SME 8 is supported. If you have modified your server by installing contribs or have used any unsupported 'upgrade' scripts, you may have issues and should consider removing any incompatible contribs before upgrading.

To Be done - See http://wiki.contribs.org/Updating_to_SME_8.0.

Please take note of this forum thread as well as bugzilla:4229 when updating after 19th April 2008.

For further information about yum updating see Yum_Updates FAQ.

Zsync

When updates become available you will be able to update a previous version of an iso using zsync, run the command from the same directory as your existing iso. zsync uses a control file to determine whether any blocks in the file are already known to the downloader, and only downloads the new blocks. If you don't have a previous iso zsync is still a good option, it will recover an interrupted download.

To install ZSync you need to ensure you have the Dag repositories enabled. See here: Dag, then issue the following commands:

yum install zsync --enablerepo=dag

Reboot not required.

cp smeserver-8.1-i386.iso smeserver-8.2-i386.iso [if you have a previous .iso]
zsync http://smeserver.bhs.mirrors.ovh.net/smeserver/releases/8/iso/i386/smeserver-8.2-i386.iso.zsync
