I have a site made with version 1.5.2 which has been running fine for years until a few days ago. The phpinfo shows it is now version 7.3.6, which I suspect was recently upgraded, but I don't know what it was before. The error log shows an error on line 70, it doesn't like the "new" for the CmsObject:

#Make a new CMS object
$gCms =& new CmsObject();
if (isset($starttime))
$gCms->variables['starttime'] = $starttime;

Is there a simple fox for this, or a way to control the PHP version?

Yep, you'll need to get an older version of PHP on there, or move it to a temporary location/vm with PHP 5.x. Generally PHP 5.6 works for the CMSMS 1.x series but for one that old you might need ~5.4.
