    Upgraded manually from 4. whatever and followed these instructions:



    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STATIC in /home/yoursite.com/public_html/amember/library/Am/App.php on line 471

    Does anyone know what that means?

    Support is closed for the weekend, I paid for the upgrade a couple days ago and can't believe it'll take about week to get this done.

    I'd bet money that you are using a version of PHP older than 5.3... as the error suggests your server doesn't understand late static bindings.

    Solution - upgrade your server to at least PHP 5.3, and preferably higher (5.6 recommended)

    Cheers

    Ps - As per aMember requirements, PHP 5.3 is the minimum version supported.

    Thanks, that's what it was. I recently downgraded to an older PHP version in CP to get one of my other installations working without having to pay for an upgrade right now. Fortunately 5.3 works for both.
