I am in the middle of my conversion to FMSA 14 / OS X 10.9.  It could be there are other pitfalls that I will find along the way, but here is what i have leaned just from reading all the posts on this list (you can go look at all of them as a problem you run into probably has already been solved in the past years since the move to the newer fmp12 format).

YES, upgrade to the NEWEST version of FX.PHP!  Benefits to upgrading to FX.PHP v6, it works with FMPro12 files.

Leave $dataSourceType set to ‘FMPro7’

If you have portal rows on a layout, you will encounter some problems, however, there is a work around and it involves changing the $dataSourceType to ‘fmalt’ (I think I spelled it correctly but now sure) that is why when I rebuilt my database in .fmp12, I am avoiding portals on the web layouts.

I am sure there is more but those seem to be the major things to look at.
