Latest version 2.0.3 refuses to start

after installing the latest version 2.0.3 or update i get:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING or ‘(’ in /homepages/1/d15956877/htdocs/piwik/index.php on line 11

I use Windows 8.1 prof
thanks - Ralf

what version of php are you using?

Is there any server error logs you could view?

my internet provider uses version 5.5.
the older Piwik version did work.

heres a topic see if any of these topics here could point to a similar issue on your environment,105879

opcache issue or php version up to at least 5.5.4

php version on the server is 5.5.8

any ideas ? new version in work ?

How are you populating the data? Is it page level coded or are you using a plugin to populate data?

as I told you the app does not start at all.
try: which is the location where I had the old app (which started and worked) then I used update to the new version…

Hi alot of the info around this is related to the php version. You mentioned your ISP says you use 5.5.8 on the server but can you double check they actually are running that for the profile of your account where piwik is installed?

Please see this FAQ: How do I fix the error "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in ..." - Analytics Platform - Matomo

thanx, I modified the
.htaccess file:
AddType x-mapp-php5.5 .php
AddHandler x-mapp-php5.5 .php
