Hi there. Just checked our PHP error logs (niemanlab.org) to find thousands of lines of this:
PHP Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /path/to/our/html/mint/app/lib/mint.php on line 3409
(I obscured the actual path.)
We were upgraded recently-ish to PHP 5.3.8. I don’t remember seeing this error before the upgrade (previously 5.2.x), but then, I hadn’t dug into our PHP error logs for awhile.
Running Mint 2.19 with all up-to-date peppers.
Of course it’s not affecting performance or anything on the front end, as far as I can tell, but I’d like to keep our logs tidy. Any help you could offer — maybe we have something config’d wrong? — is greatly appreciated.
