This - without seeing the code, we're guessing.

However, a quick google for "Cannot bind a reference" suggests it's an
error you get from DBI when you mistakenly pass a reference as a bind
var when executing a query - so check what vars you're using (whether
you're using DBI directly, or using Dancer::Plugin:Database).
