I want to add Mysqli support to a machine running:

Server Version: Apache/2.2.4 (Ubuntu) PHP/5.2.3-1ubuntu6.3

I would rather not update more things then I need to.

I run the following: sudo apt-get install php5-mysql

However, as the ubuntu version is old I get the following.

WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
  php5-cli php5-mysql php5-mhash php5-xsl php5-pspell php5-snmp php5-curl
  php5-xmlrpc php5-sqlite php5-gd libapache2-mod-php5 php5-common

E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

Questions

  1. Can I add mysqli feature using another method instead of sudo-apt get?
  2. Even if successful can this break something on the system?

Update:

I have tried to add additional sources using the instructions from:

http://superuser.com/questions/339537/where-can-i-get-therepositories-for-old-ubuntu-versions

I have the following in the /etc/apt/sources.list file:
