I'm using Joomla and I updated it to the latest version "3.0.0" .. After that I was surprised to see this message : "Your host needs to use PHP 5.3.1 or higher to run this version of Joomla!".
I was using PHP 5.2.17 and apache 2.2.22 . I contacted the customer service and they told me to use easyapache to upgrade PHP to 5.4 . I used easyApache but it gives me an error (specifically in PHP upgrade) and don't complete the upgrade process.
I tried many tutorials on the internet but they don't make sense. I upgraded Apache to 2.2.23 with "no php" option and when I browse the website it gives me : "Error 310 (net::ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS): There were too many redirects."

Too complicated, I know, but this is because I have no experience . I'll be so happy with any kind of help or advice. Thanks in Advance.
