Fatal Error: Can't use method return value in write context


New Member
I'm getting the following error when trying to publish a new article:

ErrorException: Fatal Error: Can't use method return value in write context - library/NFLJ/AMS/DataWriter/Article.php:513

Thanks for your help.
That error is due to using a non supported older version of PHP (older than PHP 5.5 (or 5.6) IIRC). Someone had this exact issue a few weeks ago and they were running PHP 5.3.

What version of PHP is your server running?
Ya, you'll need to upgrade your PHP. PHP 5.3 had been EOL for several years now. If possible, upgrade to PHP 7 (7.0, 7.1 or 7.2). Don't upgrade to 7.3 as XenForo is not PHP 7.3 ready. If you can't upgrade to PHP 7, at least upgrade to PHP 5.6, altho, IIRC, that error will not be thrown if using PHP 5.5.
