A very edge case in PHP 5.4 regarding passing objects by reference and using reflection.
* A very edge case in PHP 5.4 regarding passing objects by reference.
* It seems to be a compound effect of using reflection to set an inherited method as 'available',
* AND that method taking an explicitly referential argument (&argument sig)
* AND then invoking it with func_get_args() as opposed to constructing the array of args manually.
* No idea why these things all cause this behaviour or if they should.
* Important to note that this effect isn't present in PHP 5.5.

OSX Mountain Lion TagMan MAMP (not "MAMP" the bundle) Notes

OSX Mountain Lion LAMP pear etc Install

If you are really lazy

Install your existing keychains on new mac (there are some files you can just copy, but i can't remember which so maybe give this a go):


  • turn on Remote Login from Sharing in System Preferences
  • Run ssh localhost, the ctrl+c to cancel (cheap way to create the .ssh directory in home dir)
  • Copy private key into .ssh dir and call it id_rsa (make sure perms are 600 or similar)
