Hi
I upgraded manualy via firezilla from 1.7.13 to 1.7.20, to prepare for the upgrade to 2.0.25 (and later 2.1.7)
my site 1.7.13 site worked until today with PHP 7.4, but after upgrade to 1.7.20 I am supposed to downgrade to PHP 7.3.

"PHP 7.4.30 detected.
webtrees 1.7 requires PHP 5.3 - 7.3.
Visit webtrees.net for more information."

My host (one.com) dont offer this downgrade. lowest PHP version is 7.4

how do I proceed, can I upgrade direct from version 1.7.13 to 2.0.25? I read the instruktion like I have to upgrade to 1.7.20 at first.

thanks in advance.

Delete this section of code:

github.com/fisharebest/webtrees/blob/1.7.../session.php#L27-L34

This will remove the check, and allow the upgrade to continue.

Note that many things will not work - including many edit functions.

So after upgrading to 1.7.20, you should upgrade to version 2 right away.
