yiic parse error

Hey All, I am new to yii, and was testing out the scaffolding feature, but am getting an error when I run the following command

$ /my/path/yii/framework/yiic shell /my/path/yiiblog/index.php

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‘}’ in /my/path/yii/framework/YiiBase.php on line 59

I was using the blog example as my base

PHP 5.2.6



Any Ideas?



OK, I am using dreamhost, and apparently they use PHP 4.4.9 for the command line.

this can be fixed by running the following command after logging in via ssh

export PATH=/usr/local/php5/bin/:$PATH

Thanks to William (Comment #6) for the answer


Let’s see if this works…

This error raises because your PHP CLI is using php 4.

Sorry, I’m late… when I post this, you already solve the problem, LOL!!!
