Hello :)

Downgrades of MySQL are unsafe and unsupported. You can modify the versions of Apache/PHP via EasyApache, but the previous version of Apache you are seeking is no longer offered in EasyApache. You can access EasyApache to select a different version of Apache or PHP via:

Code:
/scripts/easyapache
Or, access it via Web Host Manager:

"WHM Home » Software » EasyApache (Apache Update)"

Thank you.

Hello Michael,

Thanks. I have downgraded PHP with the help of your support team. They provided the same procedure.
This is a new server, I have successfully downgraded MySQL version from 5.5.31 to 5.1.6 from WHM and it is working fine.

Thanks,
Imran Khan.

The MySQL downgrade was made easier in this case due to it being a new installation. However, for others that may see this thread, it's important to keep in mind that MySQL downgrades are not supported and can lead to problems with your databases.

Thank you.
