bb-config error on installation

  • Hi,

    I’m trying to install a new bb-press form, and have followed the quick installation instructions — unzip, upload, visit URL. I’m getting the following error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘=’ in /home/cmpg/www/www/site/forum/bb-config.php on line 22

    Problem is, there is no bb-config.php at this point in the installation, at least according to the instructions.

    Manually creating a bb-config (from the included sample file) and filling in the appropriate information yields the same result.

    My guess is you have a weird character in the secret key (like a single or double quote) that is confusing the next line in bb-config.php. Check for that in your secret key. Maybe post the secret key here, but just swap a couple numbers or letters around before posting it (don’t change anything but a-z or 0-9: leave all the other weird ones in there.)
