  • Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /home/car

    Hi,

    Our forum today started displaying this message out of the blue.
    http://www.caraudiocentral.net/forums/

    I think our host has done something, because earlier in the morning I submitted a help ticket inquiring about site slowness. They responded that there was another site on the server that was causing problems, and they deactivated that site and things should be good.

    But it seems as soon as they've done this, our site went down with the following error.

    Code:
    Deprecated:  Assigning the return value of new by reference is  deprecated in /home/caraudi/public_html/forums/includes/init.php  on line 49
    
    Deprecated:  Assigning the return value of new by reference is  deprecated in /home/caraudi/public_html/forums/includes/init.php  on line 97

    Warning: Division by zero in [path]/includes/functions.php(5571)  : eval()'d code on line 15
    


    Anyone have any ideas on how to even fix it? or what caused it in the first place?
    The host is saying it's nothing they did.

    Sounds like they've upgraded the version of PHP on your server.

    What version is now installed and what version of vBulletin are you running?

      Ya, that's exactly what I thought. But they claim they haven't.

      They are running PHP 5.3.2

      I believe we were running forum version 3.7

        Although this bug relates to 3.8, you could try this fix to see if it helps your own site:

          I looked over that page, but I'm not really sure what I need to try.

          do I need to add this somewhere?
          error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~8192);

            I've been having issues with modifications and such too. A permanent fix is to edit the files; includes/init.php, includes/class_core.php, etc. and on the line the problem is (i.e. on line 101) there should be something like:

            $variable =& new Class();

            Just remove the &. Fixed it for me. Another good fix for mod developers is to use this error reporting when you run into init.php errors, add: error_reporting(E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE ^ E_DEPRECATED);

              I have the same issue, and I don't have the "&" what should I do now? *sigh*

                  removing the & does solve the problem, so thanks, sheppardzwc!
