Did you reupload the file?
Ah, I thought he meant reupload it to this forum. Now I get it. (I'm a little slow sometimes.)
Yes, I had already tried reuploading the file to the server, in which case the error simply became:Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING in /home/madler/public_html/aacit/forum/Sources/Subs.php on line 247
So then you'll say replace Subs.php. Right? Ok, so I try that. Then I get:Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING, expecting ')' in /home/madler/public_html/aacit/forum/Sources/Load.php on line 132
So I can see this going for some time ...
The question is, how did this happen in the first place? I didn't make any changes and my hosting company didn't make any changes. It just woke up one day and started to give the error in the subject line. A quick search of this forum shows that this has happened to several different users, all equally perplexed with no apparent cause or solution. In fact one of them had it happen to them the same day, and posted to this thread! This is obviously something that the SMF code is doing to itself.
I guess what I need to do is reinstall. However, how do I make sure that I don't screw up what I've already set up? I recall spending quite some time jiggering permissions within the forums to get it working right, and I fear having to go through all that again.
So is there an easy way to reinstall SMF 1.0.7 without losing all the things I've done, as well as of course all the users and posts?
