I currently have a set of internal users for our wiki
Administrator access. I also have a set of external users (our customers)

I would like to remove the permission from our customers that allows them
to access the History tab. I looked into the
Extension:GroupPermissionsManager, but we use PHP 5.3.1 and we plan on
upgrading to Mediawiki 1.19 soon, so that doesn't work.
Is there an alternative you recommend? I have removed the history tab from
our CSS, but users could still access the direct url of the history page if
they wanted. I would like a resolution that denies them access, but still
allows myself and other admins to access it.
Unfortunately for your case, read access to the wiki grants permission to
both current and old revisions -- it's simply assumed throughout the
system. I don't think there's really a good way to actually prevent access
to old revisions.
You might be able to track down all the output systems and disable them
* action=view w/ oldid
* action=raw w/ oldid
