Network activation error on Pro Sites

I get an error when activating the Pro Sites plugin. Here it is:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_PAAMAYIM_NEKUDOTAYIM in /home1/youpickp/public_html/wp-content/plugins/pro-sites/pro-sites-files/lib/ProSites/Module/Taxamo/lib/Taxamo/Swagger.php on line 185

How can we solve this? Another unrelated question is on Blog Templates: how can I set it up so that new sites being created will get a copy of a certain blog template?

Thanks.

    Hi Peter,

    Hope you're well?

    This error is due to your PHP version on your server which is very old, my recommended advice would be to ask your webhost to update your PHP to a minimum of the latest 5.3.x or 5.4

    PHP 5.2.x is nearing it's end now & unfortunately the longer you wait to update, the more issues you are likely to have in future when wordpress and other plugins get updated & released.

    I have reported this to our developer in the meantime, but I would highly recommend updating your PHP version for future compatibility.

    Hope this helps

Thank NAME, for their help.
