Pages will not load, gives a php error
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Author: mkbz7b

I get a php error whenever I try to load a page with the wiki script. I was
adding articles to it, when all of a sudden this happened. I have not messed
with the code.

This is the error that I get:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or
T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in
/my/direcotry/tree/foo/livingoffcampus/info/includes/Exception.php on line 114

The error refers to these lines of code:

class ErrorPageError extends MWException {
public $title, $msg;


  • Note: these arguments are keys into wfMsg(), not text!

function __construct( $title, $msg ) {

		$this->title = $title;
		$this->msg = $msg;
		parent::__construct( wfMsg( $msg ) );


function report() {

		global $wgOut;
		$wgOut->showErrorPage( $this->title, $this->msg );

I am DEFINITELY using PHP 5, I made my host upgrade the server just for this script.

Complain to your host, then. HTTP header says: X-Powered-By: PHP/4.4.4
