Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘[‘ in D:\picarchivenew\wordpress\wp-content\plugins\wpsolr-pro\wpsolr\core\classes\utilities\class-wpsolr-option.php on line 233
Since WPSOLR 21.0, PHP 5.6.5 is required: see changelog
When you say “PHP 5.6.5 is required” do you mean that it has to be exactly that version, or at least that version?
I’m seeing that error with PHP Version 5.6.13 on Ubuntu 14.04, via Apache 2.4.7 and WordPress 4.9.8
At least PHP 5.6.5.
class-wpsolr-option.php on line 233
Do you have the exact same error?
Yes, exact same error when i try to activate. WPSOLR PRO v21.1
(also, your help forums “Notify me of follow-up replies via email” does not appear to work)
@joehobson: upgrade your php. It will fix the problem
thanks @tientq, but that didn’t help. Still seeing the same error using PHP Version 5.6.40-1+ubuntu14.04.1+deb.sury.org+1
Try upgrade to 7.x if you can.
Next release WPSOLR 21.3 will require PHP 7.x anyway.
