Parse error


I want to create my custom sign up form and have already uploaded the CCSFG_0.0.3 folder to the root folder of my site. 

When I type , I get the following Parse error message:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_VARIABLE in /home/galapag1/public_html/CCSFG_0.0.3/setup/header.php on line 1

Any ideas what the problem is?

Correct URL

The correct URL that I typed was without www, only http://


parsing error in CCSFG


This can sometimes happen if you are uploading the php files to your web server using an FTP client such as FileZilla. This happens when you use the 'Auto' or 'ASCII' transfer type when transferring the files.

If you open your FileZilla client and click on "Transfer > Transfer Type > Binary" then reupload the CCSFG files to your web server, this should resolve your issue.

If you have any further questions regarding this please let me know.
