Parse error on install

  • Hi,

    I have wordpress at the root, bbpress in a folder called forums. I had to specify a host for my provider, so I connected to the db, but the second step in the install results in a “unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING” error on line 19 of the config file. I’ve looked at other references to this error and they seem mostly to be that someone mistyped something, but I’m using the one generated by bbPress. I haven’t typed anything at all. Has anyone else had this problem?

    line 19 in the default bb-config.php is the database username. Can you look at the file and see if it’s missing a quote or had an extra quote or something? A syntax highlighting editor is a big help here since it will show with highlighting is the syntax of that PHP file is correct or not. vim is good on Linux. Notepad++ is good on Windows. I don’t use a mac to know what works well there.
