Hello all! I’m new to Meteor and this community but I’ve heard great things so I’m hoping somebody can help me with a predicament I’m facing at work.
My work is using a Meteor based web app to manage a lot of day-to-day tasks.
It was developed when Meteor was at version 1.1 and hasn’t been touched much since.
I have been tasked with upgrading to Meteor 1.5 and adding some new features. I’m the sole developer on the system.
I have upgraded and added the features, and everything is working correctly on my development machine.
I’ve been told I need to create a deployment and rollback plan in case the new system doesn’t work as expected.
My question really is this:
Once I copy the new code-base to the production server and start using it, how can I roll-back to the current running code-base?
Will I be able to simply switch back and run the old code base or are there some global Meteor files that will be upgraded to 1.5 rendering the current 1.1 code-base unusable?
