syntax error, unexpected '' (T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE),


Recommended Posts



I'm getting this PHP syntax error on line 87 of my file.


ERROR: PHP Parse error:  syntax error, unexpected '' (T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE), expecting identifier (T_STRING) or variable (T_VARIABLE) or number (T_NUM_STRING)


The function works fine, if I take the function out of that file and put it into a separate file, it works fine.

	function get_UserId($username){
		// Check connection
		if ($conn->connect_error) {
			die("Connection failed: " . $conn->connect_error);
		$sql = "SELECT id FROM users WHERE username='$username'";
		$result = $conn->query($sql);
		$row = $result->fetch_assoc();
		$id = $row['id'];
		return $id;

I would have expected you to actually show us the LINE IN QUESTION instead of talking about some function working "fine".


Your line numbers (a PIA when you cut and paste your code!) - are they really the line numbers that the error message refers to or just some editor lines numbers that you pasted here? The line:


$id = $row['id'];

certainly doesn't have any problem so the " in the error message must be located somewhere else. Does the error message refer to another file perhaps?
