In many cases you can upgrade PHP to the latest recommended version by yourself, however if this sounds difficult, you can simply contact your web hosting support and ask them to do it for you. The upgrade process is an easy process and should be something your host can do for you without affecting your website or charging you for it.
Here’s a letter you can send to your hosting company:
Dear host support,
I’m running WPRichSnippets plugin on my WordPress site, which is hosted on one of your servers and WPRichSnippets has recommended PHP version of 5.3+. WordPress, the CMS that WPRichSnippets uses, has also listed 5.4 version as the recommended PHP version on their requirements page:
Can you please let me know if my hosting supports PHP 5.4 or higher and how I can upgrade?
Looking forward to your reply.
Host doesn’t support PHP 5.4?
If your web host doesn’t support PHP 5.4 or higher, we recommend you find a host which does and move your site to it. We have a list of WordPress hosting solutions we recommend on the WPLeaders website that all support PHP 5.4 or higher. If you contact an other host be sure to ask them what PHP version your website will run before purchasing.
