    Upgrading php 5.2.x to 5.3.x

    Greetings everyone. I was wondering if anyone has taken the step from php 5.2.9 to php 5.3,6 and what issues you encountered if any? I searched the net and everyone seems to talk like upgrading won't cause any issues, but I contacted my vps provider (hostdime) and got this response:

    "Hello Lorne,

    Thank you for your inquiry. Please note that PHP 5.3.X is not completely tested and a VERY large portion if not all of scripts, engines and framework will break or completely malfunction with this upgrade.

    Best regards,

    So did anyone do the upgrade and have everything smash to bits? I'm currently on 5.2.9 and looking to upgrade to 5.3.6. I also tried searching here on wht, but typing "upgrade php 5.2.x to 5.3.x" seems to not give any useful information. Thanks!

    I would recommend upgrading to 5.2.17 and stay with that for the time being. It is true, there are a lot of scripts out there that simply will not work with PHP 5.3. I've noticed it is namely youtube video scripts and the like.

    So, if you host a lot of sites, stick with 5.2.
