View Full Version : Simple PHP Error

01-15-2005, 05:06 PM
On one of the sites I am currently building I am getting this error:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /home/toolrevi/public_html/db_config.php on line 5

I have a feeling it is easy to fix, but since I am not a programmer, I don't know how to fix it. It is a script I got from someone and I haven't been able to get a reply from them regarding this problem, hence I an trying this forum.

Any help is appreciated...

Ah the lovely T_VARIABLE error message. Unfortunately I don't know offhand what could be causing it. Could you post the lines of code from line 1 to line 6 or 7 (obvisouly removing any sensitive/password stuff if there is). Its probably a missing quote, or escape character.

Have you closed all {}, checked that all ' and " have a match, etc? And that you've closed statements with ; :)
