How to Switch from Develop mode to stable version

Hey Guys,

I am currently running my system on ERPNext: v13.x.x-develop () (develop)**. But want to switch to a stable version. Could anyone please help me with the steps to switch. I checked few links but was unclear of the steps.
I am a newbie to erpnext and not a coder. I have installed my erp using docker & docker-compose.

please, If you find a solution, let me know

cd ~/frappe-bench
bench switch-to-branch version-13 frappe erpnext --upgrade
bench update --patch
bench migrate
bench update --build

It goes without saying, take backup before doing the process.

Would you have a look into it?
Thank you in advance.

As per you log, you are getting error related to Paitent Encounter.

Are you on develop branch? If yes, then ERPNext has separated Healthcare Module in develop branch.

You need to install healthcare App separately

I switched from develop into develop-13 branch for the codebase.
I meant to migrate the database following your instructions.

Hi @mohitchechani
To be more specific, I have 2 servers running.
The first is on develop branch, and the second is running on version-13 branch.
I need to import database from the first server into the second one.
On the second server, both frappe and erpnext are on version-13.
I think it is relevant to the result of your first instructions (bench switch-to-branch version-13 frappe erpnext --upgrade).
So I ran the next command (bench update --patch), and got the error.
FYI I updated the database name and permissions, so there was no connection problem.
Thank you

Develop Branch of ERP Next and Frappe has separated Healthcare Module

So, your data on server 1 does not have Healthcare Module tables

Stable Branch of ERP Next and Frappe has integrated Healthcare Module,
Therefore, the tables for Healthcare Module are already there.

So, when you import data from Server 1 to Server 2 you are getting error

frappe.exceptions.LinkValidationError: Could not find Row #1: Document Type: Patient Encounter, Row #3: Document Type: Lab Test, Row #5: Document Type: Vital Signs

What could be the solution in this case? @mohitchechani

Once you install develop branch of Frappe & ERPNext, install Healthcare app.

Once the app is installed, all the required tables will be created. After that you can import the data.
