WordPress Automatic Upgrade Issue with PHP4

My hosting service provides 2 options for php versions; however, I have been running php4 because it was the default.  I wanted to test out WordPress’s Automatic Upgrade functionality but it just says it is downloading the zip file without any further progress.

I tried to look at permission and stuff but nothing was very clear.  However, I noticed somewhere in WordPress forum someone recommends that PHP5 is used.

I looked up how to use PHP5 from my hosting service and it was a simple line to enable PHP5.  I just added a line in .htaccess file.

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

And my WordPress was upgrade from 2.7 to 2.8 using Automatic Upgrade.
