Do you have ANY other PHP apps? If yes then things get considerably more complicated and will depend on your exact situation (and also likely beyond me). It could be simpler to host a dedicated server/vm for just your critical app.

I haven't been tracking php dev closely, but IIUC there have been advances in an app being able to have its own version of php and libraries (maybe).
