    I am setting up a new installation and I get the following error message:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘=’, expecting ‘)’ in /home/cooper/domains/doorcountycandy.com/public_html/wp-config.php on line 16

    Line 16 contains: $table_prefix = ‘h7G3vcDEo3j_’;
    It also gave the same error when the default value was ‘wp_’

    I have no idea where to start looking for a cause and any help is greatly appreciated. There is an htaccess file in the folder above the one with the Website files and it contains the following:

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/~cooper/doorcountycandy.com(.*) [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /~cooper/doorcountycandy.com/$1

    The site is hosted by Hosthead.com
