I have a site with a lot of modules running Drupal 7. I just installed a bunch of module updates, ran
update.php, and then started running some tests, upon which I noticed that one of the module updates broke an important function on my site.
After some more testing, I discovered which module update broke the function (an update from rc1 to rc2). Reverting this module back to the previous version (rc1) restores the function on my site. However, when I installed rc2, there was an update to the database for that module which was performed when I ran
I'm going to wait for rc3/a 1.0 release of this module to update again. However, is it safe to simply re-install the old rc1 version over rc2? Or could this cause major problems down the line and should I instead revert from a backup?
I'm not giving specific module names because I'd like to know what the general best practice (if any) is for "downgrading" modules.
