I've been looking all over the forums and support and have only found outdated "closed" topics for this, although none were sufficiently answered. I'm trying to install a second wordpress in a subdirectory on my site and nothing is working. I have the main worpress in a subdirectory (call it http://www.mysite.com/wp1), set up to run as if it's in the root. It works fine.
Now, I'm trying to install a completely separate wordpress (different theme, plugins, etc) in a different subdirectory. I've created a different database and user. I uploaded the wordpress files, went through installation, and then hit this error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '.' in mysite/public_html/wp2/wp-includes/user.php on line 1021
I've tried editing user.php, editing functions.php, and searching for any possible solutions - all nil. Does anyone have tricks to make this work??
