Properly Upgrading from php v5.2 to v5.4

I have already tried to normal way of upgrading:

GodaddyHome > Programming Languages > select php version


It "looks" like it succeeded: (image shows Godaddy serverdetails sidebar displaying php v5.4)





But within wordpress dashboard, the upgrade never occurred:





I am still at version php v5.2 (the image shows wordpress dashboard displaying php at v5.2)


My wordpress is up to date(4.9), I am confident the php on server is not updated because a wordpress plugin-code breaks at a line that uses "php Namespaces"  

php Namespaces were introduced into in phpv5.3


Please someone help, I have spent waay too long on this issue

How can I properly upgrade to 5.4 or 5.6



Re: Properly Upgrading from php v5.2 to v5.4

and now it works
