I got a bad surprise after updating the connections plugin today to the last version!
I can’t access any more to the backend of my WP site.
Here is the error message:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_SL in /home/www/8cfafb71bbc8f19074843b877619cc6a/web/eeig-wp1/wp-content/plugins/connections/includes/admin/class.license.php on line 134
How can I solved this?

- Search for the Connections Business Directory plugin.
- Click the Install Now button.
- Click the Activate button/link.
You data is safe and will not be lost.
Again apologies for the trouble!
ps. If you have altered any of the core plugin files, you should make a backup of those files before doing this process so you can restore them.
pss. This error was caused because the webhost is running a very old and unsupported version of PHP. A version I did not test against because it is no longer supported. When reinstalling, you will be installing a version with a tweak to make that line of code compatible with that old version of PHP so you will not see that error again. I very, very, highly recommend that you contact your webhost and ask them to upgrade your PHP. WordPress recommends at least version 5.6. because anything less may expose your site to security vulnerabilities.09/03/2016 at 2:01 pm #389432
