    I did an automatic upgrade 2.92 to 3.0 on a WPMU site and followed the info to edit the files htacess. wp-config etc. Now I can't log in and I get:

    "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home/consumer/public_html/wp-config.php on line 1"

    I disabled the plugins and also went in by ftp and renamed the plugins folder to plugins.hold in case I missed one but still the same problem. Did a search but don't see anyone asking about this error.

    You have a syntax error in your config file. After you did corrections - some character is missing or too much. Make sure you copied that line correctly into wp-config

    When you edited the wp-config.php file, what specifically did you use to edit the file?

    I used notepad to edit the wp-config.php file. I copied the line

    define( 'NONCE_SALT', '6xF{&bvT_PAsmbnG<72.dJH>D8R8M!M{~r.U]-~j:rG!g!0(g7hvz)+/h9 IY7Ge' );

    from into notepad and then cut and paste that line into wp-config.php using notepad just above /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */.

    This is a copy of my wp-config.php

    <?php/** Enable W3 Total Cache **/define('WP_CACHE', true); // Added by W3 Total Cache

    There's no space between the php and the comment about enabling the cache. try this:

    <?php /** Enable W3 Total Cache **/ define('WP_CACHE', true);
