So far as I can tell on my own system, webMathematica will run fine with 
Mathematica 5.2.

I have had trouble sometimes trying to have two different versions of 
Mathematica on my system at the same time, precisely because it's 
confused mathpass.  The problem arises when the two versions have 
different license expiration dates and the later-expiring version looks 
at the date on the earlier-expiring one.  It's not supposed to do that, 
but it has, and it's usually been fixed (after consultation with Wolfram 
Tech Support) by a reordering of the entries in mathpass or installation 
of the passwords.

By the way, notice that the "official" name of the product uses a 
lower-case "w".
