Support » Installing WordPress » 1and1.com install frustrations

  • Hi all!

    I’m flummoxed by my sudden inability to install WordPress (3.1.3) on 1and1.com. I get the following message with my latest installation attempt:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘:’ in /homepages/23/d175176731/htdocs/rickperryblog/wp-config.php on line 28

    I’ve double checked my user name, database name, etc, and they’re all correct as far as I can see.

    I did note that instead of ‘localhost’ we must now use ‘localhost:/tmp/mysql5.sock’.

    Any ideas why I’m getting this error message? The blog is http://www.rickperrypresident.com.

    Thanks in advance!
