    Please better define "can't seem to get it working." List any errors you are receiving and what specifically you have tried.

    To my uneducated eyes, you have the upload directory incorrect. Do you have the correct physical path to upload to, not the virtual one you see as an URL

    I see near the top it mentions public_html, which is a common directory name that web hosts use for uploading to. Though, it also mentions the local file path is in a folder named "Mac Website," but the upload goes to "Mac." It potentially had an issue with a space being in the path or Mac refers to an existing directory for the site.

    When I've looked up the given parse error before I have found that it is often sometimes caused by the web hosts settings that interpret the XML declaration at the top of the index.html as PHP (the <? is shorthand used for opening a PHP script block that is normally <?php). You would need to check with the web host to find out if this is in fact the source of the problem and if they will fix it.

    So its possible that the actual folder name on my desktop is causing the problem with the upload because it has a space in the name? I'll try changing it.

    That's just a slight possibility. I think my second paragraph is the more likely case.

    That's why I recommend the OP contact his (or her) web provider. For instance, I had a physical path of /domains/<domain>/public_html and I needed to place my website there, another web host I used to use had me send my stuff to /www/ so it really matters on how the web host set up the environment.
