  • parse error for new threads

    hey

    i've just installed 2.2.7 and after making all my customizations i opened up the forums and i get a parse error whenever i try creating a new thread:

    Parse error: parse error in /u/htdocs/dirty-/forums/newthread.php on line 120

    so i backed it all up, wiped it and did a clean install, made no changes and tried posting and still get the error

    thanks!


    edit: the forums may be up or down totally at the moment as i'm still experimenting

    Reupload the original newthread.php file from 2.2.7. Make sure you upload in ASCII and overwrite the one on the server. If you still have a problem after that, post the complete error message.

        Then post the complete error message. A parse error means something is wrong with the file itself.

              Sorry I should have looked at your phpinfo first. That's your problem then. You need a minimum of PHP 4.0.4 to run vB.

                as steve said upgrade PHP to at least 4.1.2 as earlier versions all have security bugs and issues as well - from your phpinfo you have php compiled statically so you'd need to reinstall apache as well to upgrade PHP
