Restoring Backups Across Feature Releases of MarkLogic
25 May 2017 06:14 PM
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
Upgrade compatibility: Upgrades and Database Compatibility
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.
