    Hi.

    I’m running PHP 5.4 but am still getting error message:

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘[‘ in /home/cluster-sites/4/d/digitaldogs.co.uk/public_html/digi/wp-content/plugins/plainview-activity-monitor/src/old_sdk/collection.php on line 29

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks

    That’s definitely a php 5.3 error.

    I’d check the PHP version again. Sometimes you have to do something in the htaccess to enable 5.4 for all subdirectories.

    Checking with my web host, now. I would assume they’re running 5.4, but never assume anything. There are still people running Windows XP.

    The site’s running 5.4. Any updates? Still get the following error on attempting to activate. :

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    I am dead sure that it’s a php 5.3 error.

    “As of PHP 5.4 you can also use the short array syntax, which replaces array() with [].”

    Turned out my .htaccess file was limiting the version of php that my site could support. Changed it and resolved my issue.

    This turned out to be a php error for me. It was corrected by switching from php version 7 to a 5 series version.
