[pmwiki-users] Transferring Wiki to another server

Gave that a shot and now it gives this error:

Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_LNUMBER, expecting T_VARIABLE or 
'$' in /var/www/htdocs/pmwiki/pmwiki.php on line 821

I was attempting to just do a quick transfer so that I could free up 
this old server...  I played with the latest pmwiki on the new one and 
it was acting kind of weird too.  Maybe that indicates a PHP issue with 
my new server?  Although, I have Webcalendar running on it right now 
with no issues.
