This is the most widely accepted raise sizing PF, and the one I use all the time. The only exception, at the smaller buy-ins, is level 1 and maybe level 2, but that's just me.
So, w/o knowing stacks, blinds, buy-in, etc, and assuming you're playing a full table and you were on the button, it means you had 5 limpers in the pot when it was your turn to act.
So following that rule juicee gave you the proper raise should have been 8BB's. 5BB's is too small. It still might not make the SB fold, especially if it was level 1 (which I kind of suspect with all those limpers), but in any case sizing raises correctly is very important, not only PF but on all betting rounds.
