That's the typical symptom of the broken PHP. Sounds like you didn't get the new package installed? Did you remember to restart apache?

Also, there are some differences from Rob's notes above.

There's no need to unpack the tarball that comes on the disk image. (As noted in the ReadMe on the disk image, this tarball is the source to PHP, unlike the tarball described in Rob's notes.)

Just double-click on the package, enter your password, and then follow the remaining directions above. (Replace the httpd.conf file, and restart apache.)

Getting the same error after following your instructions three times over. I get a parse error upon trying to run some simple PHP. Oddly enough, phps seems to work fine.

The new package was installing to the wrong directory. There's a new "new package" posted. Apologies to all -- and thanks for your patience....

i downloaded the new package [without having installed the original one], and i keep getting PHP parse errors. the php code is fine - no syntax errors at all. But no matter what script i write, there's always a parse error on the first line of code.

any ideas?
