Just for people who care. I "fixed" my website by downgrading php to

It is not a correct fix. It is a band-aid. Namely, PmWiki from  Dports
will pull 2.2.126 which will work with PHP 7.4 but has broken skins. 
My version is one of the older versions which was default one when I
migrated the site to DF server a few years ago. 

The correct fix is to install manually 2.2.134 and fix the skins. The
only benefit of the PmWiki port is tracking dependencies. There is a
reason OpenBSD guys purged all such things from their ports tree many
years ago.
