Migrating Invision Powerboard From Another Host

Recommended Posts

Hi there!


I'm just moving our site over to TCH which has been going fairly smoothly thanks to the fabulous help from Kris on instant chat, but am running into a challenge with moving Invision Power Board over. The my SQL database has been installed by Kris, I've copied across the whole folder where IVPB was installed to on my old server to one of the same name in our new server, but it just keeps coming up with:


Parse error: parse error, unexpected $, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /home/rawplea/public_html/pleasureboard/sources/functions.php on line 332


Now bear in mind that these exact same files are still working fine on my other server, so it's not a general coding issue. I'm guessing that I need to edit something in IVPB to tell it the new location/user/password of the mySQL DB, but I'm not sure where this is stored... Any ideas?

I'm not sure what you did, but it sure worked!


Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou! I was hoping to get a hint that would help me figure this out... I didn't expect someone to fix if for me?!! You guys rock!


I chose to move to TCH specifically because our last host had terrible customer service, and you guys seemed much better. So far, I have to admit I'm blown away.


May all your customer service challenges be small and your downtime minimal!
