Good question... I dunno what is the right answer. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an anything. You should email the people at iPage as they probably can answer it..
I've checked all the language files, and they all seem intact..
But the loss of all product data, seems very strange...
I just completed an update yesterday and did not have any problems. any other errors or did you receive any during the upgrade process?..
This is now getting weird. For some reason the last 3 orders I have recieved, have been deleted/removed..
I know this as all my sales are logged elsewhere in a spreadsheet. My next order came throu and it's order number is one that was used the other day...
There appears to be some difference between 5.2.8 & 5.2.9, which I experience with two exact versions/setup of osc3a5 but runs on two different servers with the said different php versions. I have not done indept investigation as yet..
As for you iPage site problem, you could try to comment out the language box, which I guess you do need anyway..
Just upgraded PHP to 5.2.9..
Now OS has lost all my products in the shop, even thou the categories are still there..
Phpmyadmin shows all the data is still in the mysql database..
Problem with admin as well.

Any advice ??..
Seems to me missing language files for the admin control panel..
The issue is not related to PHP update/upgrade..
