I am trying to install 2.1.4 on php7.3.4.

When I try to run index.php I get the following error.

PHP Deprecated: The each() function is deprecated. This message will be suppressed on further calls in C:\Websites\A-blog-test\serendipity\bundled-libs\Smarty\libs\sysplugins\smarty_internal_compilebase.php on line 75

Zend tells me php is running successfully.

Any suggestions - Reid

PHP 7.3.4 is too new for Serendipity 2.1.4. The version in the github master (https://github.com/s9y/Serendipity) is changed to be better compatible, but did not have a stable release yet.

In my blogs I installed it anyway, though with PHP 7.2. The alternative is to downgrade the PHP version for Serendipity 2.1.4 (ideally to PHP 7.0).

Serendipity 2.2 is what is in the the github master, it had an alpha release last year but many improvements since. It's tested with PHP 7.2, but PHP 7.3 is likely to support it equally well.

Best thing to do is to upgrade to the current git master, if there are problem with PHP 7.3 downgrade that to PHP 7.2.

I gotten to the Serendipity Administration Suite - all requirements met, however it says
Imagemagick binary Not found [?]
Execute Imagemagick binary Not found [?]
php_imagick.dll located in /ext dire
phpinfo() says imagick installed but 0 formats recognized

Where are the binaries suppose to be located?

I have no idea whether it is even possible to get that working under Windows. Maybe it is easier to get gd to work?

I was able to get php_imagick 3.4.3.7.3-nts-vc-15-x64 working with Php-Info() reporting 239 file types recognized :) However, I made a mistake in the "simple install" and now have to uninstall or back-up and correct. Can anyone tell me how to back-up without losing everything.

For what it's worth, I've been running 2.1.4 and php 7.3.0 for quite some time now with no known ill effects.

After posting my original post I have arrived back at the same problem. I have a working install of Php 7.2.17
I have a working Imagemagick (tested) v. 7.07-11-15-x64
I am trying to install serendipity 2.2.1-alpha from github master
When I attempt to install serendipity it reports that the binaries cannot be found. I have tried everything I know how to do, with no joy. Is there anyone who can help? It is my guess that the path is not being read correctly, but I can't figure out how to change it. The windows advanced enviromental path settings are set to point directly to the appropriate files. :(
