Good morning!

I have a strange problem here. Last night I was upgrading a site to 2.4. I removed the cms and saphire folders and then uploaded the 2.4 'cms' and 'saphire'.

Everything seemed ok but then all of a sudden I hit this message on the screen:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /var/tmp/silverstripe-cache-nfs-c06-h05-mnt-92173-domains-xxxxx.co.uk-html/.cache.nfs.c06.h05.mnt.92173.domains.xxxxx.co.uk.html.themes.hub.templates.Page.ss on line 56

I checked my template and nothing was wrong there, in fact I had not even edited or uploaded this anyway. I deleted the silverstripe-cache and still no joy.

Then this morning I thought that if I uploaded the blackcandy theme, edited the config file on the server to use this theme and reloaded the page that I would then atleast be able to see something...

The pain in the ass is, I can't log in either to do dev/build/?flush=1 because I'm being redirected to the security login page which uses Page.ss where I'm having a problem.

I'm running out of ideas about why this is happening and what to do.

Anyone got any ideas or ever experienced anything like this?

Thanks

Because of the redirection to the login page, I think you have set your site in live mode?

Maybe unnecessary to mention, but make sure you are working in dev mode so you can run dev/build?flush=all, without being loggedin:

_config.php:

Director::set_environment_type("dev");

Also try to recreate the silverstripe-cache folder, so SS is not using the webservers tmp folder..

Hope this helps.

Thank you so much,

I got it all straightened out. I think it did require some poking around the .ss templates and the corresponding php files to get it completely working.

Cheers
