Folks I need to install PHP 5.2.4 in CentOS release 6.5 (Final). My souces list are:

# CentOS-Base.repo
#
# The mirror system uses the connecting IP address of the client and the
# update status of each mirror to pick mirrors that are updated to and
# geographically close to the client.  You should use this for CentOS updates
# unless you are manually picking other mirrors.
#
# If the mirrorlist= does not work for you, as a fall back you can try the 
# remarked out baseurl= line instead.

I've tried the following procedures:

http://www.curvve.com/blog/servers/2013/safely-downgrade-php-5-4-5-3-centos-linux-plesk-nucleus/#.UqYSaVUnd4Y

With no luck! What am I missing? I cannot find the package version I need.

CentOS6/RHEL6 6.0 shipped with PHP 5.3, there is no older release. EL5 shipped with 5.1 with a php53 set of alternate packages. Why do you need that specific release? –  jsbillings Dec 10 '13 at 2:13
    
@jsbillings I need to install a home made application in a production environment. The only PHP version where the application is assured to work is 5.2.4 at the momment the application dies without any warnings. –  vfbsilva Dec 10 '13 at 12:48
    
I suspect that this application was probably targeting some other distro other than CentOS. Perhaps you'd be better off using whatever it was intended to run on. Otherwise, you'll have to spend some development time porting it to 5.3. –  jsbillings Dec 12 '13 at 3:10
    
@jsbillings the application is sort of abandononware an not well documented peice of software. Also CentOS is the distro of our production environments so in this case Ive no option. I'm by no means lecturing you just explaining my situation :( –  vfbsilva Dec 12 '13 at 12:45

@jsbillings say you're testing something like anything wrote for wordpress. Wordpress supports up to 5.2 (even though PHP doesn't even support 5.2 anymore) so you need a jenkins server with 5.2 but you dont really give a damn about everything else so you would just want to use the latest centos with PHP 5.2 –  srcspider Jan 6 at 13:16
