we are running a DokuWiki on our servers with the release 2011-05-25
Now we have to rebuild the server with a PHP version 7.4.
The following questions ...
1. can the release 2011-05-25 "Rincewind" be run with PHP 7.4?
2. alternatively, what is the effort to migrate to the latest release?
Thanks for your feedback
