FAQ: Downgrading the application

If for some reason you need to downgrade the application, you will need to:

  • unapply database migrations.
  • switch the application code version to a previous release.


First, please make sure you have a recent backup of your database! More information about backups can be found here.

Each release has it’s database migrations locked<https://github.com/dennissiemensma/dsmr-reader/tree/v4/dsmrreader/provisioning/downgrade>. You should execute the script of the version you wish to downgrade to. And the switch the code to the release.

For example v4.0:

sudo su - dsmr
sh dsmrreader/provisioning/downgrade/v4.0.sh
git checkout tags/v4.0.0


Unapplying the database migrations may take a while.

You should now be on the targeted release.
