One of my plugins wants upgrading but announces the new version requires php 5.0+ to work correctly.

Is there any reason not to have my GoDaddy shared hosting moved up the notch from php 4.0?

4.4.9 was the last and final PHP 4 version, released in August 2008, and no further version will follow. It's safe to upgrade to PHP 5 now I'd say. I am running 5.2.9 without any problems. I'd not switch to a beta or "release candidate" version of anything, but PHP 5 has been around for a while by now

Status update: I did move up to PHP 5.0 ans all is AoKay!

Note: I discovered that with my host GoDaddy I had to have "Hosting Configuration 2" (???) in order to run PHP 5.0. So, before I could up the PHP I had to let GoDaddy know to increase my "Hosting Configuration" to 2.0. Once that was accomplished I was able to go into my "control panel" and click on the PHP upgrade button.

There was no charge for either increase. Both changes required a few hours to "propagate" into/through the system. Also, neither change required any change to my website's name server addresses or anything like that.

I'm not all clear about the difference between "Hosting Configuration 2" and "1." It's all about GoDaddy rolling our more bells and whistles. But, it was something "good" and, like I said, there was no additional charge.
