Parse error on install page (8 posts)

    I read the Fast 5 install instruction and the detailed instruction and followed the detailed installation instructions. I entered the username/password/hostname correctly. Everything seems to have been done correctly, but when I try to run the install.php file in my browser, I get the following error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '.' in /home/"username left out here"/public_html/blog/wp-includes/user.php on line 588

    This is what is on line 588 of user.php:

    'show_option_all'../../wordpress/wp-includes/ => '', 'show_option_none'../../wordpress/wp-includes/ => '',

    What have I done wrong? How do I fix it? Thanks.

    Blank line or missing bracket in the code. Did you edit wp-config.php manually? Go ahead and check the lines that you changed/entered.

    It's not in the wp-config.php file, it's in the wp-includes/user.php file, line 588. I didn't do anything to this file.

    I see the error and wp-includes/user.php too, however what I was asking if you did this manually or everything via browser, so how did you attempt the install?

    Yes, I did it manually in the code editor in Dreamweaver. Thanks.

    Great, so as I was saying above, open your wp-config.php file and double check the fields you entered. Just make sure that everything is in place and that you don't have any extra or missing codes.

    I don't see anything extra or missing. I've gone over it many times. I'm not seeing anything.

    Should I delete everything and try to install using Fantastico?

    You can try that as well :)
