¡Hola sapodanglada! Welcome to the PrestaShop Forum :)


Fortunately we already know about that error, documented in a French thread here.


The error is due to the fact that your Website's hosting server is using a version of PHP inferior to version 5.0.


PrestaShop requires PHP 5.0 or later to function.  Either your hosting provider must upgrade your PHP version to 5.0 (many will if you ask), or you will have to find a new hosting service that will run PHP 5 (relatively easy to find).


In the meantime, you can read about the latest PHP versions here.


Let us know if upgrading to 5.0 doesn't solve the problem, or if you have any other questions.


Good luck!


Updated to add: After upgrading to PHP 5.0 or later, you may have to add an .htaccess file (or modify an existing one) in your root directory with the lines:


<Files *.php>
php 1
SetEnv PHP_VER 5

Hola!... i still have the same problem.. i had php 5 on my hosting but anyway im still having the same problem...

do you have any idea of why...?







Hi Sapo


The problem is that your host provider have activated php 4 by default on your website. So to fix it, you just have to ask him how to switch to php 5 and do it ;)
