Parse Error classmap.php

Hi community,

I am totally new with kirby so I need some help. :slight_smile: Thanks in advance for your support.

I just uploaded the kirby files (after I added the License key to the config.php) to my server but when I enter my URL this Error occurs:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected β€˜[’ in /www/htdocs/w00ce9c8/instatising/kirby/classmap.php on line 3

could you please help me?

Thank you :slight_smile:

What is your PHP version?

The PHP Version is 5.5 (CGI)


Could you please make sure that you are really on 5.5 by creating a file called info.php in /www/htdocs/w00ce9c8/instatising/with the following content:


then open the file in a browser. Thank you!


it seems like version PHP Version 5.3.28-nmm7. I already changed it in the (my provider) dashboard but nothing changed. It is still PHP Version 5.3.28-nmm7. :frowning:

The change might take a while to apply. You could try changing it to something else and then back though. And while you are at it, consider upgrading to PHP 7.0, it’s a lot faster.

Ok it is working now! Thanks for helping :slight_smile:
