I am attempting to install an older version of Ubuntu to gain a LAMP server, specifically to install PHP4 as am trying to resurrect a web site that uses php4 in its environment.
I've been mucking through trying to install everything from Ubuntu 6.06LTS to Ubuntu 7 and now Ubuntu 8, but I am having difficulty in getting the old repositories to work in upgrading applications and such from these older versions.
I've tried a myriad of settings indie /etc/apt/sources.list, specially changing the repositories to "old-releases.archive.ubuntu.com" and for instance in 8.04, using 'intrepid' as the build name. No joy.
Rather than list everything that has not worked... can I ask, anyone help point me to a HOW-TO that would help me install an older version of Ubuntu, and install php4 as well? And... have the dependencies bind together with Apache2 and MySql which I know has to blend together as well?
Any guidance would be much appreciated. Am running in circles and would sure appreciate any pointers.
