Installation Error

edited March 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I am installing onto my website and I get this error...
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ',', expecting '(' in /(notimportant)/httpdocs/vanilla/bootstrap.php on line 71

Any suggestions?


  • Which version of Vanilla are you installing? Have you downloaded the latest zip from here?
  • Yup. Latest version. Going to try downloading it again
  • I had same issue, did you try install again?, i tried twice now,
  • Check your PHP version. You need to have at least PHP 5.x
    and probably higher, but get to PHP 5.x first
