    Do you use eAccelerator? If so, disable it and try again.

    Please try what falko suggested, if this wont help, please post the output of:

    php -v

    Your commandline php does not know the internal php constant E_STRICT and E_STRICT has been introduced with php 5, the same with the second error, your php does not support global variables in classes which has been introduced in php 5 as well. According to your error messages my guess is that the commandline php on your server is php 4 and not php 5.

    Thanks for your replies.

    I have disabled eAccelerator and tried again but had the same result.

    till, you are correct my command line PHP is not the version that is used by apache. The command line version is PHP 4.4.9, I will try and get this updated and report back.

    Thank's for the quick update.

    I have just a little problem:

    When a customer add a database, when with my admin account i go to Site -> Database and click on the new created database i have :

    Customer = i see a blank dropdown

    Database name db[CLIENTID]_dbu1_newdatabase
    Database user dbu[CLIENTID]_dbu1_newdatabase

    Twice db[CLIENTID]_ & dbu[CLIENTID]_

    A new bug ? ;)

    @itanium: Creating databases by customers, resellers and the admin works fine on my servers, all customers are listed in the dropdown. Maybe you use a custom theme which is broken or does not load jqzuery correctly or you changed the database prefix after you created the affected database on your server.

    I decided not to bother trying to update the command line php because I didn't want to break my current apache php configuration, instead I downloaded the files manually and added #!/usr/bin/php -q to the update.php and then I changed the permissions of update.php to 755 and then run the file using ./update.php I doubt anyone else will have this problem but I always like to post my solutions just in case.

    Thinking back now before Christmas I configured my server to run multiple versions of php obviously something got broken when I installed the latest php version during March.

    @till: i will reinstall a server for test. Something wrong with my setup...

    ps: my database seems to be like in the svn? I don't really understand why because i never used svn in this server. :confused:

    At which branch did you look in svn? In svn there are many different versions of the sql database layout as we have several svn branches, for example the 3.0.4 branch is the exact same code then that you get in the tar.gz while the trunk is the code of the upcoming 3.0.5 release.
