Maybe a slightly different view... Why would you want this?  What's wrong with the up-to-date software?

How far back do you want to go?  The only way I know of is to install old software on an old system.  You're not going to get the latest version of PHP to run things like the 'mysql' extension because it isn't even there anymore.

But why?  What do you want from 5.3 that you can't get from 5.5.26?

You probably want to update those plugins as soon as possible.  Wordpress has plenty enough security holes.

@serialband: +1, could not agree more.  Find another solution, but don't use outdated plugins!
