I'm using kubuntu 13.04 I've used a downgrade script to downgrade php 5.4 to 5.3 earlier, and now I deleted the repo and that script, removed php 5.3 and now when installing again, it's installing php 5.5 not 5.4.
How do I install php 5.4 not 5.5 ?

remove your php, apache, etc

change repositories to raring (with backup)
sudo sed -i.bak "s/saucy/raring/g" /etc/apt/sources.list
update and install server packages
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install apache2 php5 libapache2-mod-php5 phpmyadmin
change repositories back to saucy
sudo sed -i "s/raring/saucy/g" /etc/apt/sources.list
ignore all current upgrades (package hold)
sudo apt-mark hold `aptitude -F%p --disable-columns search ~U`
