Parse errors in template.php, sessions.php and mysql4.php

Post by zeroK »

There currently seems to be a problem with some hosts running cPanel and PHP 4.3.3. If you get the following erorrs ...

Code: Select all

Parse error: parse error in /.../includes/template.php on line 356 

Parse error: parse error in /.../includes/sessions.php on line 205 

Parse error: parse error in /.../db/mysql4.php on line 103 

Fatal error: Cannot instantiate non-existent class: sql_db in /.../includes/db.php on line 60
... please contact your host's support and make them aware of this problem :-) According to some reports downgrading or upgrading PHP can solve this problem.

For further details please read this topic:
http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=162665

Note: Please keep in mind, that we don't support the cPanel installation of phpBB here. Please contact your host if you notice any problem with your installation.

Would this be effecting installation process on phpbb also? I recently deleted all my sql and my files for my pbpBB board to reinstall a new one and here is what I get. Here is what I get when I attempt to do the install by typing mysite.com/forum/phpBB2.install/install.php .

Parse error: parse error in mysite.com/forum/phpBB2/install/install.php on line 813

My host is 1and1 if that helps.

No, it would not, as the installation isn't used on CPanel installed boards ;)

Both of you: You probably b0rked something with the latest security fix (if you applied it)

I figured out my problem in this case. Being first time I installed it I followed directions exactly. Second time was on easyphp so it was extremely easy. Then third I tried to install it like easyphp again. That's where my problem started. Needless to say I never messed with CHMOD. :oops:

Does this error fall under this category?

Parse error: parse error in /..../..../..../..../gruntbunker.com/phpBB2/includes/bbcode.php(61) : eval()'d code on line 7

It only shows on one topic in my forum and I have searched this forum for information but have been unsuccessful.

How can I get this fixed? Would deleting the topic solve it?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same type of error, but on line 1 showing in one of my posts. I am curious as to what I can do to fix it.

Mudwalker,

Try re-uploading your bbcode.tpl file. I did it and the error message dissappeared.

Hope it works for you!

i have also been having a parse error but one in my index.php file. Which is really annoying cause I can't access my forums at all! Sadly this is my 3rd. The others I have fixed by replacing the file with a new copy of it. Is this a bug that will be fixed in 2.2?
