I have downloaded the Samba Spa theme from Feb 2016, followed the instructions on "How To Install A WordPress Site Shaper" by copying and overwriting my copy of WordPress previously installed with Softaculous and I get the below failure message when I'm trying to reach my website. I can't go to wp-admin to update Worpdress.
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ',', expecting '(' in /home/graziel3/public_html/wp-includes/comment.php on line 2303
Could you have a look at the comment.php file in SiteShaper_Shape5_Samba_Spa_WP.zip and let me know if you can re-produce the problem?
My hosting company (Siteground.com) had a look and they found this set of unrecognized characters in the PHP file: awesomescreenshot.com/0ce5qozh8f
As they couldn't go further than that I asked them if they could try and force a manual update of Wordpress which they did but I still get the following error message in my browser:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}' in /home/graziel3/public_html/wp-includes/comment.php on line 2311
Before I copied your files over I was on Wordpress version 4.4.2 and my url is https://www.massagebygraziele.com
