Updating PHP is not hard at all and updating MediaWiki is even easier,
although I think that the Wiki the Codex uses currently needs to be
drastically re-thought, it is useless and the search is crap. You even find
pages that have not been created while searching. Hence why I never use the
Codex for help, it is useless! Needs to be re-thought in my opinion.
