    There is no clean way to downgrade as the database structure of 3.1 conatins more tables and is newer then the one of

    What you can try is to download the tar.gz, unpack it and run the update.php script in the installer manually. But you should do a backup of the ispconfig database and files and also a backup of /etc directory before you try that as it might break your server.

    I tried this, but this is what I get :
    >> Update

    Operating System: Redhat or compatible, unknown version.

    This application will update ISPConfig 3 on your server.

    Shall the script create a ISPConfig backup in /var/backup/ now? (yes,no) [yes]:

    Creating backup of "/usr/local/ispconfig" directory...
    Creating backup of "/etc" directory...
    Checking ISPConfig database .. OK
    Unable to read server configuration from database.​
    any idea ?

    I got through it, I don't know why I had a dbispconfig database (not used) and a "test" database that was used.
    I switched back in the config files at the dbispconfig database with ispconfig user, reset the password and all went smoothly.
    Everything seems working now and my downgrade is ok.
    Thanks a lot!
