I'd love to go back to php version 5.2.x using yum so I can compile it using PHC. I'm having issues finding an old version, though. Can someone please give me instructions on installing php-5.2.x using yum on my system or tell me where to find the repositories to do it?


A workaround using rpm without yum:
1. Download the PHP RPM files manually.
2. Run something like:

rpm -Uvh php-5.2.14 (and other php dependencies) --oldpackage

The --oldpackage flag will downgrade the version gracefully.
