This was my first brush with Drupal 8. I just wanted to take peek to find out if Drupal is getting any better or it’s just same old useless bunch of sluggish code.
When I tried to install I got this error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING or ‘(‘ in /public_html/core/includes/bootstrap.inc on line 3
Looked familiar error and id didn’t take a long time to find out that I must not have a compatible system. And as it turned out my server is still on older version of PHP.
Drupal 8 requires at least PHP 5.3.
