Does your php error log show anything? (eg. you're trying to load an
extension not compatible with PHP 5.3.3).

Another option would be a configuration change in the new php.ini, such
as disabling allow_url_fopen (but again, it shouldn't be needed if you
have curl extension enabled, that's php5-curl package).
