Error when trying to access admin.php

Postby Grant » Tue Mar 15, 2005 2:52 am


I have managed to successfully install PKP Harvester using the install.php file.

Now, when I try to access the admin.php file, I get the following error :

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ABSTRACT, expecting ']' in C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\harvester\include\ on line 255

Is anyone else experiencing this. I am currently using Apache 2 and PHP 5.

"abstract" is a keyword in PHP 5, and so needs to be quoted. You can probably fix this by changing instances of "[abstract]" to "['abstract']" in the code

Thanks. That solved the problem.
