Issues upgrading PHP 5.3.6 to PHP 5.5x on Ubuntu 11.10

Good afternoon,

I am running into some difficulty upgrading PHP 5.3.6 to version 5.5x on an Ubuntu 11.10 (GNU/Linux 3.0.0-22-server x86_64) virtual machine.

We have used the following commands:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php5
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Everything seems to successfully download and install without errors.  

After restarting Apache2 and even rebooting the machine, when running the command "php -v" it shows that we are still running PHP 5.3.6

Can someone please advise if we are missing any steps to successfully upgrade to version 5.5x?

Thank you

On this page https://launchpad.net/~ondrej/+archive/php5 , Ubuntu 11.10 is not listed as one of the acceptable versions for that repository.  It's probably just not working.  Ubuntu 12.04 is the earliest version they claim to support.
