so why don't you just go to line 46 and check what the '}' is doing there? the prase error is quite clear on that matter . it is unmatched, i.e. it has no opening '{' corresponding to it.

there's a programming subforum here as well (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/programming-9/). please ask such questions there.

it looks like you have an extra '}' which appears on line 46. (or there is no corresponding '{')

Code:
 42 $filename = "../includes/config.php";
 43 }
 44 $_SESSION[username]=$username;
 45 $_SESSION[password]=$password;
 46 }
 47 $filename = "../includes/config.php";
 48 include ($filename);
 49 $line = file($filename);
The opening { to the if statement on line 28 is closed by the } on line 43 and then on line 46 we have another } which does not seem to have a corresponding {.

You may just try commenting line 46 and see how it goes.

Hope this helps.

FYI, when posting code it is preferred to place it within a "code" stanza to make it easier to read.

Code:
[ code ] ... [ / code ]

Edit1:
Beat me to it vadkutya.
End Edit1
