That is good to hear. Tech support told me that I had to move to 5.3 and that there were no other options. Upon further investiagion, I discovered that the .htaccess file had been cleared without my knowledge, and when I added the 5.2 line back in, the site worked again. I'm not sure how you decided that the site had no problems, since the home page wouldn't even load for a week.
I'm also unclear as to why a significant change like that was not posted on the server status forum (or better yet, an email), since I can't imagine that people would appreciate being arbitrarily moved from 5.2 to 5.3 without notice. I got blasted by tech support for not following the forums, but frankly, I have better ways to spend my time than a daily reading of many different forums to find out if you've broken one of my websites or not, especially since it turns out that it wouldn't have told me anything anyway.
I do appreciate the quick follow up (within an hour of my original post). As you can see by the time of this reply, I do not haunt the forums.
