This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Since 5.2.10 is the version that's normally installed under Karmic, so you should just have to remove your version of 5.3 and possibly undo any changes to /etc/apt/sources.list that you made in order to get it installed.

Remove the php-installation, e.g. with aptitude.

Get the sources of the required php version, compile and install it.
