Is it possible to downgrade some package? (lighttpd in 17.01)

Hi, I'm trying to get webdav to work, the package that I searched for is like:
lighttpd 1.4.45-2
lighttpd-mod-auth 1.4.45-2
lighttpd-mod-authn_file 1.4.45-2
lighttpd-mod-cgi 1.4.45-2
lighttpd-mod-webdav 1.4.42-2

so the webdav complains that:
2017-04-07 12:47:28: (plugin.c.486) plugin-version doesn't match lighttpd-version for webdav
2017-04-07 12:47:28: (server.c.1179) Initialization of plugins failed. Going down.

So is there a way to downgrade the lighttpd* to 1.4.42-2 ?
I have looked for
there is only the new version 1.4.45-2 there.
Is there anything hosting old packages, like a package snapshot server?


Looks like the buildbot has failed to build all lighttpd plugins for 17.01 or something like that.

the lighttpd package in 17.01 was updated by @rmilecki with commit

The download directory seems to contain the old version 1.4.42 of the three failing plugins, but does not have correct new 1.4.45 version.

Yes. I took a look at the source code, seems the webdav plugin is part of lighttpd but not built into the 1.4.45-2 release

So is it possible to get ipk packages of version 1.4.42-2 somewhere?

I'm not a software engineer, it is hard for me to compile it manually.


I pushed a partial fix to the 17.01 branch:

Lighttpd module trigger_b4_dl did not compile in the 17.01 buildbot and that caused the alphabetically last few modules (userdir, usertrack, webdav) to be left also unbuilt.

Buildbot is still crunching the target target platforms ( ), but now all other 1.4.45-2 modules seem to compile ok.

Your target arm_cortex-a9_vfpv3 has not yet been compiled, but you should be able to download the modules in a few hours (after the buildbot has compiled 8e1027aa1aee for arm_cortex-a9_vfpv3).
EDIT: buildbot has now built all targets...
