    I am using network solutions as a host. Creating a word press site thru them. Have been setting up my site on word press using the url they provided. Was ready to upload and launch my site. Well I changed the wordpress address url. I followed these instructions:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL
    Now I can not log in and the error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '&' in /data/23/2/128/72/2943235/user/3262192/htdocs/wordpress1/wp-includes/functions.php on line 1863

    appears.

    Please help. Also, any advice on how to get out of this hole and change my address from http://036cf37.netsolhost.com/wordpress1/wp-login.php to bancstartitle.com would be much appriciated.

    Try editing your theme's functions.php file again. Looks like you made an error when you added the new code.

    I also unassigned the domain I pointed to. Backed up and restored everything to the way it was pre error with no change. Still can not even get to login.

    Re-upload a fresh copy of the theme's folder to wp-content/themes using FTP of whatever file management application that your host provides.

    Try switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.
