One assumes that a big problem with any migration guide (or automated process) will be with Apache and MAMP

I haven’t run OSX Server for several years now, but the difference in locations between OSX Server’s locations (Site, etc.) and the standard Apache 2 locations were always annoying. Then Apache changed its locations with Apache 2.4 - which we just updated in the  port file notes, and partially updated the MacPorts instructions on the WIKI. ( https://trac.macports.org/wiki/howto/Apache2 ) 

One presumes that the remainder of the integration products - MAMP - MySQL / PHP — will also be an issue.

I never used the MediaWiki part of OSX server, but one assumes it will have the same Apache 2.4 integration issues.
