View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem reverting to PHP 5.2 on Lucid

May 11th, 2010, 08:33 PM
After upgrading to Lucid, I found that I still had a need for php 5.2, instead of the 5.3 that is installed during the Lucid upgrade. I tried the method found here:


I added in /etc/apt/preferences.d/php all the packages that I use for php, including libapache2-mod-php5, installed, and ran a2enmod php5 before restarting apache. However, my browser still tells me if I want to download php files on my server. I cleared the browser cache, a2enmod'ed again, restarted apache2 again, and still the same.

I'd appreciate some advice on how to get php scripts running again on apache.

EDIT: I should note I can get SOME php files parsed by apache, but some are not parsed. All files reside in some subdirectory of /var/www/.

What install program do you use to see the changes? I ran the Synaptic Package Manager and didn't see any changes. And what did they mean listing all the php packages you want installed? May I see how your files look? I would appreciate it! Thanks!
