Restring the working site onto local server

I have a working site. I want to do some customizations and i take backup of site by bench backup which gives a sql file. When i’m restoring it on local server than it it showing this error _mysql_exceptions.ProgrammingError: (1146, "Table '1bd3e0294da19198.tabCustom DocPerm' doesn't exist")
i’m trying around 1 week.

Below are the steps i followed

  1. Install fresh frappe
  2. Create new site
  3. Restore the backup file
    this not worked so i followed a another step
  4. Install fresh frappe
  5. Install erpnext
  6. Install customized app on local server which is on remove server
  7. restore the file
    but results is same.
  8. Create new site
  9. Restore the backup file

Here is the traceback

Is the version of ERPNext account from which database backup is taken same as version of new ERPNext instance?

The DocType Custom DocPerms is added in version 8. If you have downloaded backup from the version 7 account, then you should also ensure that version of new site is same. Else, upgrade you old ERPNext instance to version, ensure that new site is on the same version, and then try restoring.

Ok. Let me check this and also if i updgrade erpnext to new on working site, are you sure it will not effect the site ?

I think you are right.
The version of working site’s erpnext is v7.0.58
Screen shot:-

and erpnext on local server is 8.0-beta
Screen shot:-

Now can you please suggest me a sensible solution without affecting the working site?

Can you please let me know how can i degrade or install account 7 on my local server. I followed official doc and erpnext and frappe’s version is 8.

No option to degrade, Rather you should upgrade you old site to the new version and try.

FYI, we will merge changes of develop branch into master branch by tomorrow. Once merged, you can setup new site, forked from master branch which will be on version 8 then.

And no option to install account 7?
How can i update old site? with bench update?

can you please let me know is there any probability of occurring issue?

Add new site and fork it from ERPNext master branch which is running on version 7 now.

Ok but what about frappe? it is also showing 8 version(developr)? how to install 7 version and production version?

for now frappe version showing like this
Frappe Framework: v8.0.0-beta (develop)

Can you please reply on last question?

To switch to master branch you can use the bench switch-to-master command, take the database backup before running bench switch-to-master.

Thanks both. Finally i have restore remote site on local server after tying hard 7days.

umair, can you please give me a step-by-step process to do this? I am completely new to Github ,Frappe, bench and all that there is about it. I am having the same problem. I have installed ERPNext on a Centos 7 but i need to restore from an existing one running on Ubuntu. Followed the restore process and getting the same error.
I will be very grateful if i could get a step-by-step procedure.

Thank you in advance.
