After moving my website to the new Ubuntu Server 10.10 it started to work with errors. I know the problem is in the PHP compatibility. Insead of fixing the website I prefer to downgrade from PHP 5.3 to PHP 5.2 this time.

How to do that on Ubuntu Server 10.10? I have found the solution for Ubuntu 10.04 but seems it won't work anymore.

Please note that current 5.2 release is the last one supported, so fixing your code may be a good idea. – StasM Dec 25 '10 at 5:46

I used the quick method which I have found in user's comments on your first link – Andrew Dec 23 '10 at 17:09

Use this script on Ubuntu forum. It worked for me flawlessly. But the first link above has some invalid urls and the second one is customized for apache.
