#4708 new enhancement

Requirements page is unclear about acceptable versions.

The requirements page lists minimum and recommended versions but does not list information about what wordpress finds "acceptable", which is something that triggers a warning notice to users.

Ideally the page would say something like:

Note: If you are in a legacy environment where you only have older PHP or MySQL versions, WordPress also works with PHP 5.6.20+ and MySQL 5.0+, but these versions have reached official End Of Life and as such may expose your site to security vulnerabilities and a notice may appear in the dashboard to indicate this. To ensure you are never at risk of this, try to stay at least on a version of your software that still receives security upgrades (link to https://www.php.net/supported-versions.php).

And the corresponding notice would contain a link to that page.
