Restoring Backups Across Feature Releases of MarkLogic
25 May 2017 06:14 PM

Backwards Compatibility

Newer versions of MarkLogic will support backups taken from older versions of the software.  This restore may cause a reindex of the data in order to upgrade the database to the current feature release version.  Information on backing-up/restoring can be found in the following documentation:

Database Level Backups: Backing Up and Restoring a Database

Forest Level Backups and Restores: Making Backups of a Forest, Restoring a Forest

Upgrade compatibility: Upgrades and Database Compatibility

Downgrading

MarkLogic does not support downgrading to an older version.  Therefore, backups that were taken on a newer version of MarkLogic will not be compatible with older versions of MarkLogic.  For more details please see MarkLogic Server Version Downgrades are Not Supported.
