RabbitMQ doesn't support version downgrades while keeping persistent 
storage. I'm assuming since this is a testing server that's not a big deal.

So you need to downgrade your installation (obviously how you do this 
depends on how you installed it) and then delete the database base 
directory (again depends how you installed it, typically 
/var/lib/rabbitmq/mnesia on Unix but look at 

Alternatively (if you're on Unix and have installed through RPMs / debs) 
it might be easier to stop the 3.3.0 server, download the generic Unix 
tarball for 3.2.4 and unpack and run it from your home directory.
