Blacklist of newer PHP versions
Open, Needs TriagePublic


After T243667: Cannot log in when username contains spaces in PHP 7.4: "wrong username or password", we should blacklist PHP 7.4.2 somehow... Because 7.4.2 is >= minimum (7.2.22), it's valid, but we know it's pretty broken...

It might be beneficial having some more generic way of doing this in MW as these bugs happen. We did previously have a PHP Bug Tester, but that was removed as all fixes were before out minimum version

Obviously when we bump our min PHP version to 7.4, we can set >= 7.4.3 (or higher), but in the meantime, MW pretends it's a workable version

A simple fix could be just to append supported/unsupported behind the php version listed on Special:Version
