    Hi I recently moved my live site to localhost running phpmyadmin. Made changes in wpconfig for DB and login.
    I am getting this error:

    Fatal error: Call-time pass-by-reference has been removed; If you would like to pass argument by reference, modify the declaration of do_action(). in C:\xampp\htdocs\musiciansmash\wp-content\plugins\bp-disable-activation\bp-disable-activation.php on line 130

    Is this because of the php version I am running locally? Also do I have to have the website in the root htdocs or can it be like this:

    That's hard to say without known which version of PHP and WordPress you are running.

    Looks like it was an error with buddypress. I disabled the plugins and it is running.

    According to your explanation i can say that the error was not because of buddypress plugin i think it was generated by bp-disable-activation plugin so if you just deactivate this plugin then also the error message will not show.

    I highly recommend you not to use bp-disable-activation plugin as This plugin hasn't been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.
