Downgrade PHP5.3.2 to PHP5.29 or Other Working PHP Version That Doesn't Mess Up Sites

cPanel 11.25.0-S43473 - WHM 11.25.0 - X 3.9
CENTOS 5.4 x86_64 standard

I need help, I'm new to SSH, but getting familiar. I need to downgrade my PHP5.3.2 to a version that is not messing up all my Wordpress and Joomla websites. Please help! PHP5 has been working previously with no problems, server company somehow automated upgrade to 5.3.2 and I need to rollback to possibly 5.2.8 or something similar.

Correct, but I am also having problems with Wordpress sites as well, and rather than update 20-30 different Joomla and Wordpress customer sites, I really just need to downgrade PHP for right now.

My server company I rent my dedicated server from told me PHP 5.3.2 version is installed using source(not rpm installation) in the server, and I needed to contact a server administration company to fix. So they are not helping me any.

To be honest, I suspect that upgrading 20-30 joomla and WP sites will be less hassle. If they have a custom installation they are using then the chances of messing it up with a downgrade are just too high.
