Have I read the documentation before posting (which pages?)? Yes
Joomla! version: 1.5.15
PHP version: 5.2.9-2
MySQL version: 5.1.36-community
Host: Windows 2008 Dedicated Server
Akeeba Backup version which took the backup: Forgot. I have since upgraded to the latest version
Kickstart version used to extract the backup: Zip Format

Description of my issue:
After noticing that my Joomla site's tables had become corrupted, I restored to a back taken a couple months prior (the site is seasonal and had not had any new articles since last December). I was successfully able to close a new site from backup and it is functioning well but I am no longer able to make backups of the site. When I click Backup Now, the error message is:

AJAX Loading Error
HTTP Status: 500 (Internal Server Error)
Internal status: error
XHR ReadyState: 4
Raw server response:
PHP Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated in C:inetpubwwwroot2011ingnycmblogadministratorcomponentscom_akeebaakeebacoredomaininit.php on line 131 PHP Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated in C:inetpubwwwroot2011ingnycmblogadministratorcomponentscom_akeebaakeebacoredomaininit.php on line 131

When I try to go to the previous page, I get this error:
PHP Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated in C:inetpubwwwroot2011ingnycmblogadministratorcomponentscom_akeebaakeebacoredomaininit.php on line 131
PHP Warning: Call-time pass-by-reference has been deprecated in C:inetpubwwwroot2011ingnycmblogadministratorcomponentscom_akeebaakeebacoredomaininit.php on line 131


Please advise.

First, make sure that you have turned off the Debug System option in your Global Configuration. Then, go to Global Configuration, Server tab and set Error Reporting to None (this is the safest setting for live sites). Also note that I have already fixed this issue in the latest dev release of Akeeba Backup and this (proper) fix will make it into the next version.
