Not possible, just backup all your data and request a fresh install for CentOs6 from your host.

LAMP stopped working after upgrade to CentOS 7, it could not auto run on boot.
There is a small issue with python installed on my host.

I see more compatible with addons running with Cantos 6 and easily use and control them on this version.

Hello, you can't downgrade Centos.
You will have to reinstall your vps to use Centos 6

You are right, I reinstalled my VPS instead of using commands from hosting tutorials on the internet, they are complex and I got errors when following their steps to downgrade to Centos6.

I thought about this and did some searching but I think it is not possible or it should not be done because you can remove all components of Centos 7 which you installed on your hosting server, it is better to reinstall your VPS in this case so that you will have a fresh CentOS 6 to install somethings you want on it.

Downgrading OS version is not possible in CentOS, you need to backup the files and re-install the server. Also please note that upgrading from CentOS6 to CentOS 7 is impossible So you should check all your softwares should work fine in CentOS 6 before re-installing the server.
