Vanilla Porter error for IPB 3.4.7

I'm trying to convert from IPB 3.4.7 with the Porter tool.

IPB 3.4.7, PHP 5.3

PHP 7.1 (then Vanilla 2.13)

When I navigate to the porter file, I have this error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in /home/webapps/forum/uploads/vanilla2export.php on line 12238

I checked the file, and the line is:

$corruptedRecords = [];

I have no idea if what can be the issue ? Thanks in advance,

    I have not the issue with the previous Porter (2.2) and can see the management console of the Porter. Can I use it to import to last version of Vanilla 2.3 ?

    Using the 2.3 converter and commenting the section exportUserNotes() works now... (Remember =>no user notes on IPB) according to the Data currently supported per platform.
