My Jreviews installation is currently on a shared server (Hostgator reseller) with PHP 5.2.17 installed. I need to install another plugin that requires PHP 5.3. The host issues this warning regarding the upgrade:
Please keep in mind: Using PHP 5.3 will break any sites requiring Zend or ioncube that were encoded with PHP 5.2. We recommend you check with the application developers to see if they have a 5.3 version available.
They also state the upgrade step as:
We currently have 5.3.10 (or higher) installed on all servers. A handler for PHP 5.3 is added to our shared and reseller servers for those who wish to utilize it. In order to utilize this handler, you will need to add the following code to your .htaccess file:
# Use PHP 5.3
AddType application/x-httpd-php53 .php
So before I upgrade my PHP to 5.3, what steps do I need to take so Jreviews does not break?
