Na na na na Hey, hey, goodbye!

PHP 5.3 reaches END OF LIFE on June 29, 2014. It is expected it may receive a collective security update and maybe a small patch update if any problems directly arrive from that update, but beyond that; you're likely going to be out of luck.

Strongly suggest you adapt to PHP 5.6 upon it's final release (or 5.5).

I thought 5.2 was good enough... 5.5 or 5.6 worth upgrading to? why?
Should move to PHP 5.6 once it is released.

The change difference between 5.5 and 5.6 is very good in speed, but there is almost zero incompatibility difference which means it should flawless to do. So you have all the benefits, but none of the risk. ;)

Told you :D

There have been some significant improvements in the way php outputs the code and it translates into speed! :)

I'm still slightly nervous to upgrade from 5.3 to 5.6

Is downgrading a problem if I run into one? Do I need to redo the config file?

I'm surprised people still use anything less than PHP 5.4, and that's only because software such as WHMCS doesn't support 5.5 last I checked.
