PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end

Posted on Posted in Web Development

The following error may appear in your Apache error log file or displayed on a PHP web page:

Parse Error: syntax error, unexpected $end in ….. scripts.php on line …

If you are running PHP 5 then that means you probably need to enable the PHP configuration file option “short_open_tag”. In your php.ini file enable the option as follows:

short_open_tag = On
