Subject: Error updating (can't enter admin)
Hi,

I just reinstalled windows, and had to reinstall XAMPP. Current PHP is 7.3.5.

The old Dokuwiki installation was failing (it dated from 2017) so I decided to upgrade to dokuwiki's latest stable version. I've had to disable a plugin and had to clear cache too to get all the documents working.

However I'm unable to enter "Admin". The admin page just fails with "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'new' (T_NEW) in P:\web\dokuwiki\lib\plugins\plugin\admin.php on line 114". No clue other than this message.

Any ideas?
Thanks!

The plugin manager has been replaced by the extension manager. Delete lib\plugins\plugin\ and also check for other files to delete: https://www.dokuwiki.org/install:unused_files

thanks, it works now!

I had checked the "delete files" section but I didn't go as far as the 2014 files. I'll have to check them all because I think my dokuwiki started running on 2010...
