An installation of 2.4 throws a "Warning: Unexpected character in input: '\' (ASCII=92) state=1 in /home/maria1/public_html/cms/sapphire/core/SSViewer.php on line 304". This one is a 2.4 too on webhostingpad.com.
Check out http://www.maria-angelica.com/cms/.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

I've got the same problem:

Warning: Unexpected character in input: '\' (ASCII=92) state=1 in /sapphire/core/SSViewer.php on line 304

The misterious line 304 is:

$content = ereg_replace('<' . '% +_t\((\'([^\.\']*)\'|"([^\."]*)")(([^)]|\)[^ ]|\) +[^% ])*)\) +%' . '>', '<?= _t(\''. $identifier . '.ss' . '.\\2\\3\'\\4) ?>', $content);

The server I installed SS on has already an earlier version on it that works. I can't even log in now. Please, can anyone tell me, how to solve that?

Thanks in advance!

Removed the other reference as it was just me using an older version of a particular php. The current problem however still persists and I have no clue as to what could be causing it.

Yeah and I am on a shared host and it looks like the setting from a local PHP.ini doesn't work. :/ Thanks, though!

Servus,

If you can not switch the PHP 'asp_tags', you can delete the lines 286 and 301 in SSViewer.php.
The troublemakers are the <% ... %> (ASP Tags) in the comments.
