Hi,

upon loading the php installer, i get the following error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /home/paekaka/public_html/silverstripe/install.php on line 31

Any ideas on why this is hapenning?

Cheers

Hey,

figured out problem - well for my case anyway so thought i'd let you know in case anybody else has the same problem.

My server has PHP Version 4.4.2 installed as well as PHP 5, however it seemed to default to using 4.4.2 so I added the following code to my .htaccess file:

AddType x-mapp-php5 .php
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php

and it all worked perfectly.

Ahh, I see, some server configurations are different, and it depends which one you use I guess..

Thanks for the post!
