Installation Problem

    I am setting up phpwiki 1.2.10 in a shared hosting inviroment. The server is running Linux and the Database is MySQL. I only get one database (unless I want to pay for another). Here is what I did so far...

    Copied the phpwiki directory to the server.
    Ran the MySQL Schema and created the tables in the database.
    Edited the lib/config.php like so:
    line 33: $ScriptUrl = "http://wizardstorm.com/phpwiki/index.php";
    line 37: $AdminUrl = "http://wizardstorm.com/phpwiki/admin.php";
    line 54: $WhichDatabase = 'mysql';
    line 115: $mysql_server = '*'; // blanked out for security
    line 118: $mysql_user = '
    *'; // blanked out for security
    line 121: $mysql_pwd = '*'; // blanked out for security
    line 125: $mysql_db = '
    *'; // blanked out for security

    According to the INSTALL File, this is all I should have to do.
    When I go to http://www.wizardstorm.com/phpwiki/index.php I get the following error:

    Parse error: parse error, unexpected $ in /vservers/moonshaeisles/htdocs/phpwiki/index.php on line 48

    Any Advice what is going wrong???

      Well, open the file in an editor and check what's going on on line 48.
      Usually the contents of line 48 is:

        include "lib/display.php"; // defaults to FrontPage
