Description: ------------ [Using PEAR_PackageFileManager 1.5.2] It would appear that PHP's array_pop() function now strictly requires its array argument to be passed by reference. Line 108 of PackageFileManager/File.php attempts to pass the return value of explode() to array_pop(), which has pass-by-value semantics. This results in a fatal PHP error. A simple fix involves splitting that line in two: $parts = explode('.', $file); $ext = array_pop($parts); A more elegant solution probably exists, as well. Actual result: -------------- Fatal error: Only variables can be passed by reference in /usr/local/lib/php/PEAR/PackageFileManager/File.php on line 108
