I tried 7.2, but it from the AMN site with it being old, I think the floppyshop page broke as well.. The only way I could run later php versions is to run 2 servers :(
Or you could set up a docker container for the old site. This would somewhat sandbox the installation (and therefore improving security a bit), and the rest could be updated.
Is that simple to do ? It would be good if I could at least get the forum running on php7... though likely some extensions would break which would be the main issue :(

Probably the only way to really know, would be to clone the server and try the updates on the clone to see what happens.

EDIT:

Or just update ubuntu from 14 to 18 :twisted: :twisted:

I'd do it the other way around: Keep your server recent, and have a docker container with the static environment that AMN needs.

Docker CAN be simple, I just started on that topic myself. The most difficult is probably the networking, since every container has its own networking interface. What I would probably do is set up the container to my liking and then have the already running apache reverse proxying the site to the container.
