KB10033: How to reset the version history
How to delete previously created versions of the pages and/or documents if you want to reset the history.


Your instance was under test operation for some time and now you would like to switch to production, but there are a lot of previous test versions of pages and documents. You would like to reset the history to start from scratch.

CAUSES automatically creates a minor version on every change of a page/document and a major version on every publishing. See links provided below for more information about versioning.


1. Execute these statements in the MS-database:

DELETE FROM dbo.AxVersionHistory
UPDATE dbo.AxPage SET CurrentVersion = 1
UPDATE dbo.AxDocument SET CurrentVersion = 1

2. Delete everything under publish/history and publish/preliminary in the file system.

APPLIES TO versions: ver5 and above
