Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /homez.65/ikgbcldw/www/silverstripe-v2.2.3/install.php on line 518

This is because you're running PHP4. SilverStripe requires PHP5.

No. They have you set up with PHP4. Ask them to upgrade you to 5.
