Fatal error: /mambots/system/joomsef_metabot.php on line 73

Postby wynddrop » Mon Jun 10, 2013 3:16 pm

I'm trying to help someone get their older joomla page back up and running. I had to migrate the database from mysql4 to mysql5 and now we are getting an error in the Mambot joomsef_metabot (prior to this it wasn't working at all because of the database version).

Fatal error: Call-time pass-by-reference has been removed in /mambots/system/joomsef_metabot.php on line 73

Does anyone know what has to be fixed to get past this error? I know eventually we will upgrade to a newer version of joomla.

I'm new to joomla and have only worked with 2.5 until now. I believe he is running 1.0.15 Stable on this site.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Ally

Open the file on your server located at /mambots/system/joomsef_metabot.php
I guess on that line you have

Code: Select all

$myframe = new metaMainFrame(&$mainframe->_db, $option, '.');

Remove the & sign before $mainframe and save.

Thanks again,
