If you're really set on using php5, you can install php5 and bind it to *.php5 files. That way, all the old php3/4 files, with the extension *.php will still be parsed by php4, but you can create php5 apps by using the php5 extension...

I did manage to do this succesfully on my testserver, but can't recall the exact procedure. I googled for it, so can you.

I don't know what upgrading mysql would have for impact, but there is likely to be some, since it's a BIG upgrade from 3 to 5...
