Looking at Moodle support, documentation says:
System requirements

PHP must be 5.3.2 or later
Required PHP extensions: iconv, curl, ctype, zip, simplexml, spl, pcre, dom, xml, json
Required PHP memory_limit at least 40MB (64MB or more recommended if you have a choice)
Databases should be one of the following:
MySQL 5.0.25 or later (InnoDB storage engine highly recommended)
PostgreSQL 8.3 or later
Oracle 10.2 or later
MS SQL 2005 or later
Any standards-supporting browser from the past few years, for example:
Firefox 3 or later
Safari 3 or later
Google Chrome 4 or later
Opera 9 or later
MS Internet Explorer 7 or later
Note: The above system requirements are unchanged from Moodle 2.1.

When I log into my Moodle site, I am getting a message of:
Your Moodle files have been changed, and you are about to automatically upgrade your server to this version:

2.2.1 (Build: 20120109) (2011120501)

Once you do this you can not go back again.

Please note that this process can take a long time.

Are you sure you want to upgrade this server to this version?

Please advise me if it is OK to proceed. I can not afford to be without Moodle any more.

Hello lambda,

Thank you for your questions about upgrading your Moodle site. Before performing any upgrade, it's always best practice to first make a backup of your site before proceeding with your upgrade. This way, if something does not go as expected, you still have a good, working copy of your site you can restore.

I checked into the server requirements listed for your upgrade and all the server requirements check out. You can verify these through a php info file in your account.

Please let us know if you have any additional question or need further assistance.
