I am sorry to say, I messed up while I thought I was following instructions carefully from here.
I got this error message:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_OBJECT_OPERATOR in /homez.117/terouma/www/wordpress/wp-admin/index.php on line 79
Now I have an error message
which I never had a minute prior
Your server is running PHP version 4.4.9 but WordPress 3.5.1 requires at least 5.2.4.
If someone generous of their time can help me overcome the mistake I must have made, I would be eternally grateful.
