Not sure where this topic should be posted – I went to update my WordPress site and received this error message:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘(float)’ (double) (T_DOUBLE_CAST) in /home4/pat2fewa/public_html/wp-content/plugins/connections/includes/entry/class.entry-actions.php on line 1019
Not sure what to do since I can’t access anything in WordPress admin area – all I get is the error line above.

Part of the issue is the server is very likely running a very old and unsupported version (for years). I recommend to update your site to run a more recent version of PHP. WordPress recommends version 7.0 due to it being much faster and far more resource efficient. I recommend at least version 5.6 (which is actually going to be unsupported soon if I remember correctly).
You should be able to delete the
../wp-content/plugins/connections/folder via FTP. The will let you back in you admin. Now you can reinstall Connections as you normally would. You data is completely safe and will not be deleted by deleting the plugin folder.
I released a revised update today which will make it work again on the very old version of PHP. It’s a very minor change but necessary for that old version. So you could also wait and install the new update if you wish.
My do apologize for the trouble this has caused you!03/30/2017 at 6:18 pm #418234Pat CollinsParticipant
Thanks for the tips — I updated to the most recent version of PHP and all is good!
No need for apology – I shouldn’t have assumed I was automatically running the most recent version of software (more for me to learn!)
