So I'm pulling my hair out at this point :/
I've got an IIS webserver set up with PHP 7.1.11 on Windows Server 2012 R2 Datacenter Edition , when I load up a page it throws a parse error:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in functions.php on line 138
Now the actual piece of code where this goes wrong is the following
$hash = password_hash($nieuwWachtwoord,PASSWORD_DEFAULT, ["cost" => 13]);
And when I changed it to
$hash = password_hash($nieuwWachtwoord,PASSWORD_DEFAULT,array("cost" => 13));
It executes the code without any problem.
But then when I called another function running the following code
It also throws a parse error. The frustrating thing is that this shouldn't happen since declaring an array like that on the go should be possible in php7.1 (and this same code on a Linux machine running ubuntu with apache2 works like it should)
Also the last case where I "assume" an array is returned should at most throw an undefined index error instead of a parse error.
Does anyone know what the cause may be?
Thanks in advance!
