Beginning with version 2021.03.15, whenever a new version is installed, a copy of the NowSMSInstall program will be archived to /var/lib/

To rollback to a previous version, run the archived version you want to install, and select the update option to install that version. (We plan to add options to the Admin UI in a future update to further simplify this process.)

Prior to version 2021.03.15, to rollback to a previous version, the best method is to locate a copy of the previous version of NowSMSInstall.

Run the NowSMSInstall from that version and select the option to remove the service. This will not delete any data or configuration files. It will stop the NowSMS service, remove the service registration from the operating system, and remove the program files.

Run this NowSMSInstall a second time to install the program files, register the NowSMS service with the operating system, and start the NowSMS service.
