After manually upgrading to 1.2.1, I received (as expected) a screen prompting me to upgrade the database from 1.1.1 to 1.2.1. Attempting to do this via the browser timed out (and caused the server to grind to a halt due to too many open MySQL connections); doing it via the command line also didn’t work. Apparently, the version of Debian our server runs does not have phpmyadmin available for it. Instead of upgrading our VPS just for this, I would like to downgrade Piwik to 1.1.1 which was running fine.
I know in the forums I’ve read that just manually installing an old version works as a downgrade (with your own config file). I made an error in not keeping a copy of the old Piwik install. But I was wondering if perhaps the failed attempts to upgrade the database may make this impossible or difficult; also, is our lack of phpmyadmin going to make downgrading also impossible? Any ideas or help are appreciated.
