After install using the ".php5" extension (server runs php 4 with ".php" extensions) proceeding to the main wiki page results in an error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /usr/local/pem/vhosts/107170/webspace/httpsdocs/wiki/includes/Exception.php on line 160
I was under the impression that php include files do not need the .php5 extension, but it seems that the server is still parsing it using php v4.
My phpinfo files:
my guess is you need to look at Apache's config file "httpd.conf" in the /conf directory.
Apache controls which version of PHP is associated with the file extensions ".php", ".php4", & ".php5".
Do a Google search on "apache php4 php5" to get some configuration advice.
Have you set $wgScriptExtension = ".php5"; in LocalSettings.php ?
Also check that index.php5 actually works; eg if just the directory index default is loading up the index.php in PHP4.
Is this still a problem? Is $wgScriptExtension and the directory index set?
Opps, didn't mean to close here.
hi aaron, i have tried again recently and it has worked successfully on the stable latest version with the same setup.
