PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in /var/local/phalcon-devtools-master/scripts/Phalcon/Builder/Model.php on line 373

What version of PHP are you running?

The new array syntax using [] is only as of PHP 5.4, and it looks like that's what is in your source code.

You'll need to convert arrays to the traditional 'array()' syntax.


thanks. it has been fixed.

Do you mind sharing how did you fix this? Is there a way to do it without spending much time on it?

thanks. it has been fixed.
