MediaWiki is at least theoretically able to upgrade its database schema 
from any old version to current one for your chosen version, by running 
the maintenance/update.php script. (Not sure how well Semantic 
extensions handle that, but probably also well enough.) As long as you 
manage to upgrade MySQL and PHP to a compatible version, that is :)
