Recently I tried to install media wiki on my server. I have php

browsed to the folder after uploading the software:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION
or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in
/home2/words/public_html/wordopedia/install-utils.inc on line 118
I put it in a folder that I renamed wordopedia.
Where did you get the copy of MediaWiki you are working with? Do you know which version
it is? What operating system are you using?
A bit more info and we might be able to come up with something!

Thanks for the replies. I downloaded the latest from the media wiki
website. It is version 1.15.4. Here is the site:
My hosting provider wants to have me pay for much, much higher price
dedicated hosting to get to the higher version of php as they would have
to upgrade things for everyone or something like that. I have not had a
problem with any modern application so perhaps I am doing something
wrong. It seems unusual that I cannot rename the top directory to
something of my choosing. Oh, well. I'll change it back and see how it
goes. My name wasn't 100% original anyway :-) There is a wordopedia
but my website is about writing and poetry and is called Word Salad so
that seemed like the best name.
