Tried updating to Connections Ver 0.7.6.5. but got an error…
Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a Fatal Error.
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘<<‘ (T_SL), expecting ‘)’ in /htdocs/wp-content/plugins/connections/includes/class.settings.php on line 417
Help required please.

And the update crashed my entire site. I had to go in the back end and delete the entire connection folder on the server to get the site back. What happended?04/30/2013 at 2:14 am #258312reneGuest
after the update my entire site also crashed, i am not happy!! What to do now?04/30/2013 at 2:16 am #258313Minius112Guest
Same here – Error on line 417 in class.settings.php. Had to manually (-ftp) deactivate connections in order to keep my page running
I did not delete the entire folder. Could anyone provide a walkaround or a bug-free version of class.settings.php?04/30/2013 at 2:46 am #258314JosephGuest

someone posted a solution in the wordpress.org support – forum which worked just fine for me
download class.settings.php via ftp (wp-content/plugins/connections/includes/class.settings.php)
delete following entries (the number on the left represents the line)
417. <<<<<<< HEAD
425. >>>>>>> fxbenard-develop
Tassos explanation: “I think it has something to do with the <<< in that some servers accept only two , some three and so on.”

thanks a lot, great tip, works also for me.04/30/2013 at 11:57 am #258368Steven ZahmKeymaster
Apologies for the trouble. Somehow a merge conflict had occurred without warning.
You can follow the advise above or just delete Connections and re-install it. It is safe to do, you will not lose anything.
