Downgrade php 5.4 to 5.3

I wanted to run a downgrade of PHP from version 5.4.4-14 to 5.3.
What procedure do you recommend?



What Linux distro/version are you using?


Hi Eric,

Linux 3.2.0-4-amd64 on x86_64
Debian Linux 7.0


Ah, yeah, PHP 5.4.4 is the PHP version that’s available in Debian 7… there unfortunately isn’t a standard or supported way of downgrading that.

The best way to go to a different PHP version would be to use a distro that ships with your preferred PHP version.

Ubuntu 12.04, for example, ships with PHP 5.3.10.


Changing the OS involves a lot of changes right?
I’ll have to re-install webmin and virtualmin?
