Platform compatibility

The PHP and MediaWiki version ranges listed are those in which SMW is known to work. It might also work with more recent versions of PHP and MediaWiki, though this is not guaranteed. Increases of minimum requirements are indicated in bold.

Note that HHVM is only required if you do not use PHP.

  • Note: It is strongly recommended to also always upgrade the underlying MediaWiki software to supported versions. See the version lifecycle for current information on supported versions.
  • For the 1.28 MediaWiki release branch, 1.28.1 or later is recommended due to T154428.
  • For the 1.27 MediaWiki release branch, 1.27.4 or later is recommended due to T100085.
  • PHP 7.1+ requires at least MediaWiki 1.29 due to T153505 and T143788 (at the time of this writing). Please also consult the official MediaWiki release documentation.

  • "Full support" means that all functionality has been verified to work and that it can be used in production
  • "Beta support" means that most functionality has been verified to work, though stability is still low, and things might be buggy
  • "Experimental support" means there is some preliminary support which is still much too immature for use in production

The information in brackets denotes the versions with which SMW is known to work. SMW might also work with different versions, especially more recent ones, though this is not guaranteed.

Notes


This documentation page applies to all SMW versions from 1.7.0 to the most current version.
