Deprecated Error: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in

In my post, Negative Effect of Keyword Hijacking, I told you that I transferred all my blogs hosted by DreamHost to a new Dedicated server.

However, I found out today that my Gallery blog was still dead. I haven’t set-up an account for the blog and of course I haven’t set up the blog including its files.

So, just to make the story short, I set-up an account for the blog using the CPanel/WHM, the database, and then I immediately  uploaded all the files including the WordPress files that I recently downloaded from the server of Dreamhost. After that, I imported the back-up database of the site, and then tried to reactivate the blog.

But there’s another problem. Accessing the blog will generate this kind of error which says:

Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in …

I don’t know yet what’s the cause of this problem. My other blogs haven’t experienced it.

I think and think… until I remembered that my other blogs have been installed with the updated Wordress software. It might be the reason why my Gallery blog generated this kind of error because I failed to update its WordPress software.

I never wasted time. I downloaded the latest version of the WordPress and uploaded the files into the server. After that… everything went fine.
