It appears that there is an issue with Expression Engine that is
causing a 500 error when loading the page. The error is:
PHP Fatal error: Cannot use
Bool because 'Bool' is a special class name in
on line 9
Based on some Googling of the issue, it appears that this issue has
been resolved in newer versions of Expression Engine and updating it
should resolve the problem.
I'm new to expression engine and haven't developed on it before, and due to the error am unable to log into the back-end to perform the update. I also couldn't find the info on google he appears to have found. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this issue?
As it turns out, this was a bit of a mess, and the error I described above may not have been relevant to the environment of the site. That error came about after upgrading php/mysql/apache on the server, and since this site was down because of that, we reverted the entire server back to a Server Image Backup. So that error may not have been relevant to the state before the upgrades.
The original developer checked out the site and found that the .htaccess file and config were wrong, still not sure how, but that was where the issue ultimately was coming from.
