    Exclamation Need help from an expert, server upgrade causing many errors.

    Hi all

    Im so thankfull for a forum like this, what a great forum and I will most-likely use it as I am in the (very) beginning stages of learning php.

    I need some help, serious help

    I am a web developer for my company and I look after all their websites. (Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress etc) After the php upgrade a couple of weeks ago lil' old me am sitting with enormous issues with all of my websites.

    The site I need help from a php developer is called www.blog.topplaces.co.za (Wordpress) Im not much of a Wordpress fundi, but I have tried numerous things to try get rid of the error messages in the backend of my site, which is:

    Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /usr/www/users/topplr/blog.topplaces.co.za/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php on line 738 Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /usr/www/users/topplr/blog.topplaces.co.za/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php on line 1108 Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /usr/www/users/topplr/blog.topplaces.co.za/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php on line 1602 Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /usr/www/users/topplr/blog.topplaces.co.za/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php on line 1643 Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /usr/www/users/topplr/blog.topplaces.co.za/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php on line 1663 Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /usr/www/users/topplr/blog.topplaces.co.za/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php on line 1693 Deprecated: Assigning the return value of new by reference is deprecated in /usr/www/users/topplr/blog.topplaces.co.za/wp-includes/class-simplepie.php on line 1763


    ...this error carries on over a few 100 lines...I have tried installing the plugin called "Log Deprecated Notices" which shows where these errors are, and how to "rename them" I have done this...but only come up with more errors in the FRONT END of my site.


    Is there ANYONE who can spare some time on helping a girl out please...?

    Thank you for the awesome furum xxx

    First thing to try is to get the latest version of simplepie and update your installation to that -chances are they have fixed the deprecation errors. http://simplepie.org/development/

    Hi ! Thank you for the reply!!!

    I have managed to upload the plugin with the core - had to adjust some cache folders to work...installed WP-Super cache to make it work and deleted some other cache plugin....phew..

    Things are looking ok, there are no errors in the front-site, but in the backend still the following. I have left all settings default in SimplePie - should I??? Why am I getting these errors: in

    You must be careful before upgrading the PHP version or stay up to date with the applications/scripts that you have used like WP, Joomla, etc. So just upgrading PHP is not good enough, you can hide the errors but it will harm your site/server by logging the error/warnings in a file internally. So I would recommend to upgrade WP to latest version if possible which does not have this deprecated problem. Otherwise if you just want suppress the warnings/notices and, etc. you can use your own error handler. See some examples here http://www.php.net/set_error_handler.
    Mistakes are proof that you are trying.....
