Support » Fixing WordPress » Is it easy to downgrade to 3.4.2?

  • Hi,
    Upgrading to 3.5 broke my site. I’m pretty sure it’s my theme. Until they get an update is it easy or possible to reinstall 3.4.2?

    thanks!
    Will

    You can manually reupload 3.4.2 core files and folders (except for wp-config.php and wp-content) from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.4.2.zip but because the database was upgraded, there’s no guarantee things will work right.

    Ask your host for a rollback, if one is available, or a database backup, if you want to manually revert to 3.4.2

    Hi, Thanks.

    IF things don’t work right, can I then go back to 3.5 and be where I started? Or am I risking a bigger mess?

    My safer option is to wait and see if my theme developer offers a quick fix….

    thanks for the help.

    Please help! WordPress 3.5 is just a blank white page on my iPod. How do I get back to 3.4.2? Or how long for an update? Please make it easy to switch back when we upgrade.

    I also get problem with upload photos with 3.5.1.
    I have had website zip file of older version from server (lucky), I wonder it is okay for the website to extract zip file of website to cover the moment site. How to do? Who can guide step by step? Thank you!

    No – it’s not easy. Nor do we recommend it as you would be placing your site at great risk of being hacked. It would be far better to establish & correct the cause of your problems in WordPress 3.5.1.

    Please post your own topic about this.
