If you get this error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ARRAY, expecting '&' or T_VARIABLE or T_CONST in /home/mydomain/public_html/drupal/sites/all/modules/imageapi/imageapi.module on line 161

The problem is on your PHP version. Imageapi needs PHP 5!

Just feeding the search engine, trying to help anyone looking for this.

EDIT: Never mind, I'm dumb. I forgot the stupid web host our client is using requires special crap in the .htaccess in order to use PHP 5.

Re-closing, since I can't do it when I edit my previous comment.

I just moved my local site to the server. I use Dreamhost and they use php5 exclusively. I am getting the same error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ARRAY, expecting '&' or T_VARIABLE or T_CONST in /home/wildlettuce/wildlettucedesign.com/sites/all/modules/imageapi/imageapi.module on line 161

Dreamhost does not offer support for php script so I am hoping someone here can help me.
Dreamhost servers run PHP in CGI mode.

Maybe I need "special crap in the .htaccess"?
Do I need a php.ini file? If so, I have no idea how to go about that either.
Am I just out of luck?

I need to have my site up by noon today... if possible. Please HELP!

wildlettuce: Try running a phpinfo() script to see if you're really running PHP 5.

Thank you so much. I did not know of this phpinfo() script, I was using the web panel of my host which stated clearly that php5 was what was used exclusivly. I ran the script and low and behold - 4.4.9!

I am going to work this out with my hosting. Thank you again for responding so quickly.

fyi phpinfo is available in drupal without writing any php, somewhere under 'status' you click your php version :P
nah nevermind i'm thinking of drupal 7, woops.
