    Default PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in paypalwpp.php

    Hi there,

    I am running into some problem at checkout. I think I should upgrade the PHP version, which I did yesterday to V.7.1 but that caused more problems, and I wasn't able to view product in single product page:

    PHP Code:

    thrown in /includes/modules/westminster_new/additional_images.php on line 132 
    So, I rolled back to PHP7 instead, and while I am now able to add items to cart, but when checking out, it hits a blank page, and my log shows this error message:

    PHP Code:
    PHP Parse error:  syntax errorunexpected '['expecting ',' or ';' in /includes/modules/payment/paypalwpp.php on line 1148 
    I am preparing for my finals, so I can't do anything major such as upgrading my cart from v1.5.4p1 to most current version or upgrade the template. Is there a temporary fix that I can use for now?

    Thanks in advance!

    ZC v1.5.4p1
    PHP 7.0
    Template: westminster_new

    Default Re: PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in paypalwpp.php

    Zen Cart 1.5.4 was not designed to run on PHP versions > 5.6, as your debug-logs indicate.

    Line 1148 of paypalwpp.php, for instance, contains
              global $$order_totals[$i]['code'];
    On PHP versions > 5.6, that "runs into" the change to indirect variables (aka variable variables), as described here:

    Try changing your PHP version to a variant of 5.6! (Upgrading Zen Cart is a wise idea too)
