What is the
highest version of Mediawiki we can upgrade to?
says that 1.33
is the last version to support PHP 7.1. MediaWiki version 1.33 will
probably be supported until approx. June 2020.
Note that MediaWiki version 1.31 is a Long Term Support (LTS) version
supported until approx. June 2021.
We have mediawiki running on CentOS 7 with SCL, but using wiki version 1.31 for
the very reason it offered long term support. We are starting to look at
RHEL/CentOS 8, and I suspect that before mid-2021 we will move the wiki onto a
CentOS 8 server. CentOS 8.0 currently offers PHP 7.2, but I gather that CentOS
8.1 will offer PHP 7.3 as well. With the use of modules in RHEL/CentOS 8, we
should be able to keep up to date better with software requirements (PHP in
this case) as required by mediawiki.
Anyway, that's the plan... :-)
