Use the database backup you took before upgrading :) Then replace the files in your installation with those from 4.7.3.

The best way is to re-install the 4.7.3 db after uploading the 4.7.3 txp files. Is there a reason you wish to downgrade?

Troubles on the server where it went badly earlier … :(

If those issues are solved due to your host changing their mod_security setup, what’s preventing you running 4.8.0 now? Anything else we can help with? Does Diagnostics issue any information under the 4.8.0 environment that might help? Are all the Txp files up-to-date on the server and force-refreshed on the browser?

I agree with Stef. I think that downgrading will not be sustainable. Solving the issues now will guarantee future compatibility. The community is here for you.

Okay, I hear you … :)

I’ll ask the host again to look at the mod_security setup. One moment please.

The host did some tweaking of mod_security again and I can now save a (new) template. Hooray!

But … there was still no left kolom on ‘Pages’ … !? I did a brand new install (4.8) and imported a new database from the local website. Now everything is alive and kicking on the host’s server … :))
