Ubuntu downgrade commands

How can I downgrade the node from 1.18.1 to 1.18.0 on Ubuntu? Thank you

If you have 1.18.0 binairies, it’s just a matter of stopping the node and restarting with those binairies.

I’m new at this. Can you tell me how to get the binaries for 1.18.0 because I don’t have it. I installed my node with 1.18.1 , I never had 1.18.0

No problem, where did you get the 1.18.1 binairies?

I installed it from the source code using coincashew’s guide

Alright good, so you’re going to have to rebuild with tag 1.18.0, step 2 basically from the guide

git checkout tags/1.18.0

Stop your node

Delete the 1.18.1 binairies from your $NODE_HOME/bin folder or wherever you copied them usr/local/bin

You might have 1.18.1 and 1.18.0 binairies in your dist-newstyle folder so make sure you get the 1.18.0 binairies copied to your $NODE_HOME/bin

And then start the node and you should be good

What are some of the names of the binary files because inside the bin file is just cabal

In cardano-node directory you should have a dist-newstyle directory with everything that’s built

You need :



cd cardano-node
cabal clean
cabal update
git fetch --all --tags
git checkout tags/1.18.0
cabal build all

cp -p dist-newstyle/build/x86_64-linux/ghc-8.6.5/cardano-node-1.18.0/x/cardano-node/build/cardano-node/cardano-node ~/.local/bin/

cp -p dist-newstyle/build/x86_64-linux/ghc-8.6.5/cardano-cli-1.18.0/x/cardano-cli/build/cardano-cli/cardano-cli ~/.local/bin/

and verify correct version with:

cardano-node --version
cardano-cli --version
