Error running eCart on remote server

Error running eCart on remote server

I will be the first to admit that this may very well be a PICNIC error (Problem in chair, not in computer) since this is the first time I'm using eCart, but I am having an issue in running eCart in PHP/MySQL on a remote webserver.

When I test the cart page on the remote server, if I try to perform any action (update cart, checkout, etc.) I get the following error:
<i>The requested URL /store/<br /><b>Parse error</b>: syntax error, unexpected ';', expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or '{' or '$' in <b>/... PATH TO FILES ON SERVER .../WA_eCart/WA_eCart_Definition_PHP.php(118) : eval()'d code</b> on line <b>1</b><br /> was not found on this server.

I was able to figure out that this error is actually occurring within the FORM, inside ACTION field on the Cart page. So the error is being triggered before I click on any button.

Testing page for store: Products_Detail.php

However, when I test the pages locally on my computer, no errors occur, I can update, proceed to checkout, everything working seemingly without issue.

Because this is a bit of a rush project, I was using the Checkout Wizard and the Getting Started Guide, but instead of the tutorial files I was using our website. I am thinking I should back up and work my way through with the tutorial files first, thinking I may have accidentally taken a shortcut and missed a crucial item along the way.
