*Install old packages with Debian Snapshot *

:: snapshot.debian.org is a wayback machine that allows access to old packages based on dates and version numbers. It consists of all past and current packages the Debian archive provides. I found out about this service when a customer needed to use an older version of PHP, and I couldn't find a way to cleanly do this. Thanks to Debian Snapshot, it's now done & running.

I began by finding out the exact version of PHP and Apache packages that needs to be installed.

The client asked for PHP version 5.3, so I browsed to http://snapshot.debian.org/package/php5/

Found that the most up to date version is 5.3.10-2,
so I browsed to its folder : http://snapshot.debian.org/package/php5/5.3.10-2/

It shows date & time of 2012-02-21 04:16:01
so I added the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list :

# PHP 5.3.10-2 packages
deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20120221T041601Z/ unstable main

Note the date & time format on that line.

Now we need to install Apache version 2.22.2-1 – why this particular version?
Answer: because this is the version required by PHP 5.3.10-2 package; it will complain if any other version are installed. So yeah that's pretty easy to figure out ūüôā

Using similar technique, I found out the line for Apache2 packages :

# Apache 2.22.2-1 packages
deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20120202T040408Z/ unstable main

Now let's do the installation process itself :

# remove current PHP packages
sudo apt-get remove –purge `dpkg -l | grep php | grep -w 5.5 | awk '{print $2}' | xargs`
# remove current Apache packages
sudo apt-get remove –purge `dpkg -l | grep apache | grep -w 2 | awk '{print $2}' | xargs`

# update package database
apt-get update

# this is the setting required to be able to use Debian Snapshot
apt-get -o Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=false update

# now we can specify the exact version
apt-get install php5=5.3.10-2 libapache2-mod-php5=5.3.10-2 php5-cli=5.3.10-2 php5-common=5.3.10-2 php5-gd=5.3.10-2 php5-mcrypt=5.3.10-2 php5-mysql=5.3.10-2 php5-pgsql=5.3.10-2 apache2=2.2.22-1 apache2-mpm-prefork=2.2.22-1 apache2-suexec=2.2.22-1 apache2-utils=2.2.22-1 apache2.2-common=2.2.22-1 apache2.2-bin=2.2.22-1

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

If the commands does not work, maybe it's formatting problem – you can refer instead to my Pastebin here : http://pastebin.com/r2qBtbs4

Hope you find these useful (y)

  11. Anxiety is a common negative side effect of Meth use. Xanax, a medication used to reduce anxiety, can be used to combat this negative feeling. The result is an extremely addictive combination that often leads to heart issues. As Meth speeds up the heart, Xanax slows it down. This can lead to heart arrythmias, which can then lead to potentially fatal heart failure.
