Hi magento,


"magento" <---  :D


This error is definitely a result of not having PHP 5 installed and activated.


I checked out the ixwebhosting Website, and according to their FAQ, they only support PHP 4.


To use PrestaShop, either ixwebhosting will have to upgrade to PHP 5, or you'll have to find another hosting service that does use PHP 5.  Ixwebhosting will soon have to upgrade anyway: according to php.net, development on PHP 4 will cease in a few weeks (see "PHP 4 end of life announcement" on their homepage).


Good luck!
