    Description

      Reported here: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=276367

      Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in \\server\moodle\lib\moodlelib.php on line 8633
      

      This should work fine on php 5.4 and above (which is required) but it looks like the this function is called before php version check and the error message in confusing for the user.

      It's not difficult to re-write $address = explode(":", $address)[0]; into the code compatible with older php versions
