The installer/upgrade tool error
I tried the upgrade tool and got this error after I filled everything in and clicked Submit:
Internal Server Error
Fatal error: syntax error, unexpected '['
Ouch, I knew I missed something ... well honestly I didn't know, but it seems I did.
I assume you are running PHP prior to version 5.4.0?
Is there any chance to either upgrade or get upgraded to 5.4.0? Because despite the fact I said it requires PHP above 5.3.6 (which is still true), there are some things being used that would require 5.4.0 or above.
Let me know if that would be possible, otherwise I'd have to check if there could be some sort of backport being done. Just saying though, PHP 5.4.0 was introduced 3 years ago, so not talking about experimental stuff here.
Turns out all's good!
My host had started rolling out php 5.4.x upgrades a couple of months ago, but my account had been using some custom php.ini settings so they did me as a soft-upgrade, with 5.3.x active and so I could check things and manually switch between versions when ready. I just never got the e-mail about the whole thing.
So I did the manual switch to php 5.4.45 just now, and then the upgrade test works great! All's green :biggrin:
Glad to hear, welcome aboard then 😀
