I created a mySQL database, added 3 tables and populated them.
I unzipped wordpress version 3.4, uploaded the files into a wp folder in my http root folder.
Got a parse error on the first try, so I copied the sample config php file and edited the database information (using the server's ip address) then uploaded the wp-config.php to the wp folder but still got the parse error below.
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /home/content/d/a/s/dasecho/html/wp/wp-includes/option.php on line 225
Has anyone seen this before?
