Support » Installing WordPress » I can’t install WordPress on my Webhost

  • I did install WordPress on local webserver running on Mac OS X 10.3.5 and it works fine….really an easy install.
    BUT, when I am going to upload all my work that I have done locally to my webhost, I get several errors….
    When accessing main area:
    Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING in /customers/chelseascorner.com/chelseascorner.com/httpd.www/wp-blog-header.php on line 455
    When accessing admin area:
    Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_STRING in /customers/chelseascorner.com/chelseascorner.com/httpd.www/wp-includes/functions.php on line 221
    and so on….”sigh”…nothing works.
    My simple question is: WHY?
    It works really fine on my own webserver!
    Please help…

  • What did you use to FTP the files to the server?

    Yes, it’s likely something got corrupted when you uploaded. The line numbers indicated in the error messages are a good place to start looking.

    I used Bulletproof http://FTP…but I changed to Fetch and some of the stuff works now…but not the admin area though…weird…

    I know that wne I first started uplaoding PHP files, the FTP client I was using didn’t have the setting to send PHP as text, and so it sent it as binary, which caused me some problems. Once I changed the setting to send php files as ASCII, all was well with the world.

    I got it to work! It was the Bulletproof FTP program that messed everything up…with Fetch it all worked.
    Thanks for the replies.
