Hi
Yes, just install the previous version which can be seen in the zypper
history file for example;


fgrep apache2 /var/log/zypp/history
2010-12-07 09:46:10|install|apache2|2.2.10-2.24.5
2011-09-21 08:26:51|install|apache2|2.2.10-2.30.1

zypper in apache2-2.2.10-2.24.5

There are other options, see the install section of the man page.

Hi,

means that both versions must be accessible to zypper. Is this ensured?
What happens when you update the kernel and the server is not coming up
anymore?

Hi
If you run multiversion in the zypper configuration it will retain the
previous kernel and entries in grub. This is a before scenario, not an
after one.
