PHP versions up to and including 7.3 are now [[|EOL]], therefore using the latest version of the 7.4.x branch is highly recommended. Please note that Dokuwiki is not yet compatible with PHP 8.

-The pcre library in PHP needs to be compiled with UTF-8 support. You can test this by executing ''pcretest -C'' and looking for "UTF-8 support" (or "UTF-8 and UTF-16 support") and "Unicode properties support". ((If UTF-8 support is missing, snippets in the search results will be missing and when you follow links in the search results the pages will be empty.))
