"Unexpected chracter" error when trying to install piwik


#1

Hi! I have Hostgator as provider and am getting the following error when I try to open the URL csakmost.com/piwik to start installing/configuring piwik:

Warning: Unexpected character in input: ‘’ (ASCII=92) state=1 in /home2/mcjavar/public_html/piwik/index.php on line 40

Warning: Unexpected character in input: ‘’ (ASCII=92) state=1 in /home2/mcjavar/public_html/piwik/index.php on line 40

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home2/mcjavar/public_html/piwik/index.php on line 40

Any suggestions?

I did. Does it mean that Piwik is not working with Hostgator?

No it means you can configure your server to use php 5.3 or 5.5 and then piwik will work
