Cannot downgrade nextcloud to [Solution]


HUGE DISCLAIMER - I am a noob! Like really…

I just decided to move to Nextcould and I want to drop a little bit of knowledge on the moving process.

At this moment I was running latest version of ownCloud, following standard update procedure I ended up with this message on the login screen before the update was due to begin “cannot downgrade from to”.

So, I opened /var/www/owncloud/config/config.php and changed ‘version’=> ‘’ to ‘’.
Saved and reloaded the web page. Update was successful!

I hope this helps a fellow newbie like me.

You shouldn’t do this. You propose a solution to an issue by silencing the warning.
