Support » Plugin: WP Google Maps » Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION

  • Resolved nhhsm


    Hi, this morning I got the following error message on my site:

    unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home/wp000717/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-google-maps/wpGoogleMaps.php on line 353

    I rename the folder, gain access to the admin panel and deactivated the plugin. Later I raneme the folder back and tryed to activate it again, only to get the following on the plugin manager screen:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION in /home/wp000717/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-google-maps/wpGoogleMaps.php on line 353

    Any idea what’s going on?

    Hi @nhhsm,

    Thank you so much for getting in touch, we really appreciate your time.

    Could I ask you to confirm what version of PHP your site is running on?

    This would be a great help in identifying the issue. If you are unsure, you can obtain this information from your host.

    Interesting I began an installation an hour or two ago, and I am experiencing the exact same issue.

    WordPress 4.9.1
    Theme: Kale Pro
    PHP 5.6.30

    I commented out the function in question, see below, and was able to activate, but clearly not ideal

    /* plugin deactivation checks */
     include ( "lib/codecabin/deactivate-feedback-form.php" );
     add_filter('codecabin_deactivate_feedback_form_plugins', function($plugins) {
        global $wpgmza_version;
        $plugins[] = (object)array(
            'slug'      => 'wp-google-maps',
            'version'   => WPGMAPS
        return $plugins;

    Hi! Sorry for the delay.

    The server I’m currently hosting the site in uses PHP 5.6, this is the newest PHP that it has available (the other one being 5.5.1).

    6.4.08 now contains a fix for this.

    Cool. Updated and working perfectly

    Hi there! I downloaded the update and was able to activate it again. It seems to be working just fine, but this message was displayed on the plugin manager screen when I reactivated WP Google maps:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare wpgmaps_deactivation_survey_t() (previously declared in /home/wp000717/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-google-maps/wpGoogleMaps.php:363) in /home/wp000717/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp-google-maps/wpGoogleMaps.php on line 363

    @nhhsm 6.4.09 should now fix that (just released) – please confirm?

    @nickduncan CONFIRMED!

    Thank you!
