I checked the server logs, those were different visitors who did not access critical files as it seems.

Can I assume that this was a server problem?

yes, it looks like that server can't find end of file. maybe if you turn "short_open_tag" option on php.ini to 'off' it will be solved. check: http://www.bin-co.com/php/articles/using_php_short_tags.php

and another guess is that your files encoding are changed while moving to another server/file-system. see if their encoding are "utf8-without bom".

thanks for your feedback, twohid. This was a one time thing, if it occurs again I do what you suggested :)

Have a good weekend!
