XF 1.4 expecting variable (T_VARIABLE) or ${ (T_DOLLAR_OPEN_CURLY_BRACES) or {$ (T_CURLY_OPEN)?

I'm installing the version 1.4 on a shared hosting. This error occured in the step 2:

Parse error

Hopefully you have now re-uploaded the files and been able to install XenForo.

FileZilla is known to cause problems like this. I'd suggest you use another FTP client. WinSCP is recommended for Windows. If on a Mac I'd suggest Cyberduck.
