Downgraded

Following the guide How To Downgrade Droplets, I have successfully downgraded my server in Digital Ocean. As every other guide, the scenario is almost always not exactly the same so I did my part of researching to resolve issues that have arised along the way. I’d like to note important things tailored to my needs that the guide never mentioned. Export the database manually. The guide only covers copying of the files, not the database.

Happy Holidays!
