How to change php version ?

I already installed apache, php, mysql on my new linode with ubuntu 12.10, but when I transfered my first website, it turns out that the script I'm using is not working with php 5.4 and I need to downgrade php to 5.3

How to do this, what should I do ? I don't have anything on this linode, so I can delete everything if necessary.

Switching to Ubuntu 12.04 LTS will give you PHP 5.3.10 (plus security patches), and it should be supported for 3-5 years (vs. 18 months for 12.10). See this link for more about the LTS releases and why they're a good idea in general.
