Warning: PHP 5.3.1 has a bug in it and is not supported by MediaWiki. You should use PHP 5.3.0 or PHP 5.3.2 instead.
And XAMPP is using PHP 5.3.1 precisely
- Code: Select all
This is a regression in the [b]PHP 5.3.1[/b] release. When you call a __call() function with a reference parameter, it is silently converted to a value, by the time it reaches the second argument to __call().
This breaks MediaWiki and has no obvious workaround.
If it breaks one of the most used web software then it's a reason good enough to patch XAMPP.
