    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Fatal error: Can’t use function return value in write context in /home/catndogg/public_html/wp-content/plugins/post-my-contact-form-7/public/class-cf7-2-post-public.php on line 187

    What version of php are you using?

    I am using PHP Version 5.4.45

    EDIT: I updated to PHP Version 5.6.32 and everything seems to be working correctly! Thank you!

    Great. Indeed this plugin requires a minimum of 5.6 to work. Ideally you should upgrade to 7 which speeds up execution.

    Hi, I got the same error. Got the wordpress on the server upgraded to v7. Still getting the same error on trying to activate the plugin. I had the site working fine on development server, and have moved it to a more strict production server and gotten this error. I had to move databases and do find+replace operations to change the site path. Could there be some issue with that? Is there a way to wipe out any existing mapping in the database and start clean? EDIT: SORRY, just checked with a display-php-version plugin, my wp is still on older version. will try to correct and report back.
