Problem with wordpress.org authentication keys--parse error
getting a parse error-unexpected t string message: unable to locate problem

 7:42 pm on Jul 21, 2009 (gmt 0)

Please help! This is very elementary but I am in the process of trying to download wordpress.org. Unfortunately I am getting the message parse error-unexpected t-string...line 45. I have looked over this for ':' errors and ' " ' errors but can't find what is wrong. Can somebody please help me with this?

45: define('AUTH_KEY', ''cHNS_y(:]I}qv(V3$3/;t$AK;q^0d]3Y8h wPPA`dm5¦,x6d/n^{j{;^GiXl{_s+');

46: define('SECURE_AUTH_KEY', ''p])8w?t8)a?+BamBE¦K-B 7ejWm<M6B=yBSk/0}KSx&cuqq},.d3[R,pyxN+K]#j');

47: define('LOGGED_IN_KEY', ''D=FUt J]k1&W57LCuY6pDW+`v<.HQy(vZr^[LpnCEdh8/^t.0&1%gM&Acg<O>Zy-');

Welcome to WebmasterWorld!
I'm not sure why you're getting that error. I've never seen it. That looks to me like your server has been compromised or is not configured to a standard setup - in which case you should visit the WordPress Forums and see if they can help you get it sorted.

I don't think so Gregg - unexpected T_STRING is a PHP error and taboois on the right track - it's usually an unclosed quote, bracket, missing semi-colon or some such thing.

In any case, all the lines you just posted all have unmatched quotes. The second terms all start with a double quote and close with a single. So that's a problem.

Also, T_STRING errors can also be the result of syntax errors above the flagged line. In other words, an unclosed quote several lines up doesn't immediately cause a problem, but the parser gets down to your opening quote on line 45 and takes it as a closed quote. At that point, it is not expecting a T_STRING, so it blows up.

So even though there are syntax errors in lines 45-47, I expect there's one more unclosed quote above line 45, but that's just a guess.

BTW, this might help in the future:

This might help too:

Trip down memory lane - seems like a lifetime ago I wrote that one.
