Default Mersenne wikimedia platform = old

Mersenne's Wikimedia software platform is getting old... For more revised features that I am planning to incorporate, I would appreciate if the mediawiki platform is updated.

I am willing to do this myself.

We are stuck with what we have. To get the math engine running we had to do a lot of weird code changes that were never documented. The fact that it runs at all is a miracle.

IIRC, Mike has said that the reason for not upgrading the software was because it required a newer version of PHP, which the hosting provider does not support (and it's not possible for us to upgrade PHP ourselves due to the lack of direct access).

We think the PHP thing is now updated to the correct version.

Given the choice between something old that works or something new that is (possibly) broken beyond repair, we are inclined to "do no harm".

A few months ago we sent a copy of the database off to Chalsall to look at, since he is an expert in that sort of thing.

We are open to suggestions but we are limited in knowledge and ability.

Upgrading becomes difficult if you have modified our source code, and you don't want your changes to be overwritten.

Yes, of course, see here.

(This like the joke with two blondes coming out of a restaurant in the middle of the night, one says "oh, I forgot to pee", the other one "don't be upset, I can teach you", well, my best translation, sorry if the pun is not so clear in English...)
