I'm having to migrate a trac installation from 0.11.7 to another host who only provides 0.11.6. I am not able to update the older installation.

My question is, Is it possible to migrate? What will I lose (if anything), and What problems will I face?

I created my trac backup by following the official instructions

$ trac-admin /path/to/projenv hotcopy /path/to/backupdir

thanks in advance.

I don't recall anything in the 0.11.6 -> 0.11.7 changes that would cause you problems. To double-check, create a test Trac environment in 0.11.6, then upgrade to 0.11.7 and see if you have to run a trac <env> upgrade to get it working. If you don't, I would not expect you to have any issues with the core Trac resulting from restoring a 0.11.7 environment on a 0.11.6 setup. There might be issues with plugins, depending on what you may be using.

Disclosure: I'm one of the Trac devs

thanks, the downgrade went without a problem. – bramp Sep 7 '10 at 10:48

That would require intimate knowledge of trac. Or you could read the changelog.

However, I think the trac devs would be able to answer your question best:

Post something to the user list.
