From the Tools menu select
Rollback Core, select the version you wish to rollback to from the dropdown and click
Rollback. You will be directed to the
update-core.php page where you should see a button to
Re-install your specified version. If you move away from the
update-core.php page before clicking the
Re-install button you will have 15 seconds to return and complete the process or you will need to start over.
In multisite use the Settings menu.
WARNING: Downgrading WordPress Core may leave your site in an unusable state requiring a complete reinstall or a forced reinstall using WP-CLI,
wp core update --force --version=5.5.3. It may also leave your site broken due to a plugin or theme incompatibility. Use at your own risk.
Rollbacks use your current locale.
