warning unexpected character in input ‘\’ ascii 92 will only appear if PHP version is under 5.3
So please do confirm you are under PHP 5.3 environment.
My XAMPP / MAMP is running PHP 5.3 still cannot get this error away
Answer: Because you are still using PHP 5.2, why? It is because Terminal may take its own PHP version instead of your PHP version.
1. Check your phpinfo by creating a testing script
2. In terminal, type ‘php test.php’, it should show PHP version from the top
3. If it is 5.2, then please type
(using XAMPP as example)
After these steps should ensure you got the right environment to work on. Cheers~
