Switching between editions of the same version

Your documentation states that there is no code to change should we choose to change edition. Sounds good. Does this imply that all the data, documents and buckets etc. will behave identically if I “replace” EE with CE? And what is the process to “replace”?

The data path is /opt/couchbase/var/lib/couchbase/data. If I run the CE installer after EE was installed, will it just replace all the ‘other’ stuff but preserve data and configuration?

Hi @twinkle,

I would definitely recommend using cbbackup/cbrestore before you do try that. https://developer.couchbase.com/documentation/server/current/cli/backup-cbbackup.html
