I am using private Ethereum chain. I have sync my chain using Parity/v1.7.0-beta. Now I changed the Parity version back to Parity/v1.6.10-stable; but it gives following error:

Database was created with newer client version. Upgrade your client or delete DB and resync.

[Q] Without updating Parity, is there any way to prevent this error and continue sync from where the chain remained?

Thank you for your valuable time and help.

    Not sure, you could try to export the blockchain to a file, reset the db and import the chain from the file. – Waqar Lim Sep 14 '17 at 7:55
