Doing a rundown of the errors now listed in the init.php file...... most are of this and some type of variant of it involving vbulletin:
That's the cause of the warning; the ampersand after the equals sign, before the keyword "new" is saying to assign the object to the $db variable by reference.
I have no idea, off the top of my head, if removing that "&" will fix the issue. It would remove this particular error, but might possibly cause others. If you try that, you should keep very careful track of exactly what you changed, so you can put it back like it was.
The best idea would be to upgrade the photopost plugin, I think. (Is it indeed a plugin? I don't have a "photopost" in any of my vB installations).

Is there a way just to fix all these errors? I'm going to start removing that & in those lines above and see how that goes. I guess I'll still get that class_core error as I don't know what to do with that one.
I just got the photopost login info and will see if I can get an update for php5 to see if that fixes things too.
Thanks for having patience with me as this is all new for me.
Try to obtain an updated version of photopost? If whoever wrote it still cares about enough it to pay attention there should be one by now: PHP 5.3 has been around for three years - and will be reaching the end of its development lifecycle in March, with development concentrating on 5.4 and 5.5.

If photopost is a dead project, and you're not willing/able to update and maintain the plugin yourself, then two options are to hire someone to do the updating and maintenance of it, or to replace it with an alternative plugin that is still active.
