Hello, is there an easy way to downgrade the PHP version of an app from 5.5 to 5.4 without having to create a new app thus moving all the files in the old one? I have found instructions in the forum to add lines to the .htaccess file however those where probably meant to update to a newer version of PHP as I tried it and it didn't work for me.

Yes thanks, I had seen this but if I follow any of those steps what I get is a 500 Internal error message on the site in question.

Have you checked the error logs in /home/<username>/logs/frontend/error_<app name="">_php.log?
