Installed wrong version of Shopware on PROD ?


I think that I have made a big mistake, I deployed the dev version on prod env.  

How can I move the actual Shopware 6 shop to the stable channel (with all pictures, orders, clients, admins,…) ?

Is it possible to restore everything ? For example, install the latest version and simply apply the database to the latest stable Shopware version (I guess not…)

Anybody please ?

Will I have trouble with the project by leaving it like that ?


Too bad, I thought I will find help around here :( 

less mimi more pewpew, instead of waiting for an entire month to just come back and whine you could have tried so many things or atleast given us more info


the only thing you need to backup/save is the media folder and a working copy of your database (preferably from the same version, or alteast the same minor), setup the new shop, upload your “old” database, copy the media folder and you should be good


you might need to run a command on bin/console to rebuild the thumbnails

smth like bin/console media:generate-thumbnails 

not 100% sure tho


and hopefully you have learned about the importance of backups right before you start to change major things
