    kindly help me it out

  2. Alec says:

    1) Your php version can be too old (php 4?).


    2) The file /home/easysol/public_html/wp-content/plugins/rp-news-ticker/rp-news-ticker-loader.php is uploaded partially, please fully remove the plugin directory by hand and reinstall (or reupload).

    Please translate things like T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM into English next time…

    The weird name means Duuble Colon in Hebrew.

    We are on version php 5+

    We have the same problem as above… Is it wordpress plugin downloading it partially or some proxy servers on the planet are corrupt??

    1. Alec says:

      Try to download the plugin from this web site and install manually. Same error?

  4. Justin says:

    I’m getting the same error as above. I even tried your suggestion Alec, but it still results in the same error.

    1. Alec says:

      Use 0.5 for php < 5.3. Will make 5.2 compatible for the next release.
