Step B: Locate the Database - AWS Elemental Delta

This is version 2.3 of the AWS Elemental Delta documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Delta Documentation.

Step B: Locate the Database

Locate and make note of the database file to restore.


If you meet the conditions in Downgrade Special Consideration, locate the database backup for version 2.1.3 as well as the version that you're downgrading to.

Every time that you downgrade, AWS Elemental Delta automatically makes a backup of the database similar to this:


When you perform the downgrade, you specify the database backup that you're restoring. Ideally, you should restore the backup that corresponds to the version that you are downgrading to. For example, when you're downgrading to version 2.2.0, you would restore the 2.2.0 database.

If the database for the version that you're downgrading to isn't available, you can use an earlier database. For example, if you're downgrading to 2.2.1 and that database isn't available, you can restore the 2.2.0 database. Be aware that you will lose all entities (input filters, output filters, and so on) that you created between 2.2.0 and 2.2.1, though.
