  • help error on install?

    i was trying to install my forum today but after uploading the files and trying to reach the install this comes up:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting ',' or ';' in /home/content/k/o/b/kobrelair/html/includes/adminfunctions.php on line 397

    That looks like a file problem. Try re-uploading your files, overwriting the existing ones.

      I just did and I made sure I reuploaded all files in ASCII and Binary mode and when I tried running it again still comes up. =\
      Should I try wiping the files out of the server and reupload new ones instead of overwriting?

        Which script are you running when you get that error?

                What error are you getting? If it's still the one from post #1 then I still need to know which script you are running when you get that.

                  and i went to line 397 on the adminfunction.php and it say:

                    Are you paying for the hosting?


                    vB5 is unequivocally the best forum software, but not yet...

                      Yes, I bought the Deluxe Linux package from GoDaddy but now Im starting to regret it. I used to have A Small Orange before for hosting but I wanted to try something else and i bought a domain from godaddy so I figured it be good. Idk I wanna try it out first with this if nt ill end up changing.

                        Different to mine...

                        Code:
                         echo "\n</body>\n</html>";
                        Try downloading a new copy of the software from the members area, find and re-upload that file only overwriting what's on your server then try again.
