I'm using Mac OS version 10.9.1 and have downloaded MAMP version 5.5.33. Candidly, I gave up after three trials to make MAMP more secure by changing password, after changing it, could not connect to MySQL.

MAMP has two green lights indicating both MySQL and Apache servers are working.

When I try to run today.php from URL I get:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'F' (T_STRING) in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/today.php on line 12

I suspect my setup is not complete, but have researched without success for a few days, hence this thread.

Any help would be welcome.
