Summary0027840: Increase minimum PHP requirement to 7.2.5

In January 2021 we announced on our blog that we would end support for PHP 5.x, and set the minimum supported PHP version to 7.0 (see 0025956).

Unfortunately, for various reasons 2.26.0 could not be released as initially planned and 2 years later it does not make much sense to release 2.26.0 with a PHP 7.0 target anymore, since that is out of support since January 2019 and standard support for Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Xenial Xerus (which comes bundled with PHP 7.0) ended in April 2021.

We'll align with Ubuntu 18.04 "Bionic Beaver", which comes bundled with PHP 7.2.
