I'm running 2.6.11, and everything has been working great. Then last night tech support at my colo upgraded my php from 4.3.1 to 4.4.1, which is a good idea...but suddenly I started seeing errors on posting in the forum:

Notice: Only variable references should be returned by reference in /home/www/esea/forum/index.php on line 182

Notice: Only variable references should be returned by reference in /home/www/esea/forum/index.php on line 182

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/www/esea/forum/index.php:182) in
/home/www/esea/forum/theme/default/post.php on line 3912


Seems the problem is with

return mysql_fetch_row($result);

He rolled back to php 4.3.11 and all was good, but he strongly advises that I upgrade FUD to the latest and then upgrade php again. My questions:

1) Have you seen this error, and will upgrading FUD eliminate it?

2) Can I upgrade directly from 2.6.11 to 2.7.3? Any special precautions or steps to take before proceeding?

FUD rocks, and I want to stay current, but I don't want to break anything! Any advice would be welcomed.

TIA

You can upgrade directly from 2.6.11 to 2.7.3 as long as you are using a non-modified version of FUDforum. If you've customized the source code of the forum there maybe some regressions.

Thanks, Ilia. So I should make sure I have backups of any modified components, then run the upgrade and reapply any modifications afterwards, correct?

Yes, but when you re-apply the changes keep in mind they may not necessarily work, so you may need to change them slightly to work with the newer code.

Thanks. Yes, I realize that. The changes I've made have been cosmetic, so that shouldn't be a problem.
