Laravel ERROR 500 apache2, php7.1

Hi, I´m facing some kind of new issue with Laravel. I´ve had already deployed a lot of Laravel sites on others cloud server using Ubuntu 16, but at this 14.4 on DigitalOcean it is the first time.

Using Laravel 5.7, Apache2, PHP 7.1 as usual.

Fixed all the permissions at storage and bootstrap dirs and the log shows:

[Thu Feb 07 07:25:56.837047 2019] [:error] [pid 1447] [client] PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘.’, expecting ‘&’ or variable (T_VARIABLE) in /var/www/primorossiseminovos/primorossiseminovos/vendor/symfony/var-dumper/Resources/functions/dump.php on line 18

What could it be?

Hey friend!

So it looks like line 18 of the file at /var/www/primorossiseminovos/primorossiseminovos/vendor/symfony/var-dumper/Resources/functions/dump.php has bad syntax. It looks like it relates to the use of a period. If it’s safe to provide that line here, others might be able to provide information about how that line should look.
