PHP 5.2: Parse error after installation


I installed emoncms with this tutorial:

But as i try to call the url i got this message:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in /www/htdocs/xxx/xxx/emon/route.php on line 112

What can i do?

I’m getting the same problem.

“Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘[’ in /home/sites/ on line 112”

In a light bulb moment I tried changing the php version to 5.5. It was on 5.2 and I am now getting the create feed page so looks like progress


PHP 5.5 is the minimum version supported by Emoncms, 5.6 is recommended.

Does you shared server support docker? Is so, I would consider looking out using Emoncms running in our docker container for easy install:

Requirements section has been added to the readme:
