I excidently upgraded the magento version from 2.2.0 to 2.2.1 through composer. Is there a proper way to downgrade back to 2.2.0? I have a database backup of magento 2.2.0.

I had the same problem and Magento2 doesn't support roll-back completely.

What to do:-

  • First of all, you have to make your code to 2.2.0. You can do that by using composer.
composer require magento/product-community-edition 2.2.0 --no-update

composer update
  • If you have a DB copy of your Magento 2.2.0 than link current app [2.2.0] to it and run upgrade. It will bring your 2.2.1 DB to 2.2.0 and you will be in sync again.
