I have installed silverstripe and all is good, working like a dream except i get this error when you first visit the site: if you hit refresh it dissappears.

the error is as follows:

"Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated; If you would like to pass it by reference, modify the declaration of xml_parse_into_struct(). If you would like to enable call-time pass-by-reference, you can set allow_call_time_pass_reference to true in your INI file. in /home/.skidder/solidtech/ on line 260".

I understand what the error is asking me to do, but i dont know how to do it. is it asking me to edit my php.ini file, if so how? im using hosting from dreamhost.

or if its asking me to edit that dps.php file (which i have opened), what do i need to do to it???

Thanks in advance for all your help.

try adding

php_flag allow_call_time_pass_reference 1

to your .htaccess file in the root directory of the site.
