    I got the following error after I updated the website "http://www.oefentherapiedenbosch.nl/". Can anybody tell me how to fix it and what the problem is?

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<', expecting ')' in /home/otd/public_html/wp-content/plugins/bulletproof-security/includes/functions.php on line 167
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Thank you in advanced.

    Hmm that's an interesting parse error. Normally you would see something like ; or } or ) or : and not a < parse syntax error.
    Have you modified your functions.php file? Please post code lines 160 - 175 of your BPS functions.php file. Another possibility is that the installation of BPS did not complete successfully and sometimes when manually uploading files via FTP the entire file is not uploaded.

    Are you running PHP5 on your website?
    BPS requires PHP5.
    Thanks.

    I think I maybe know the cause. The account had only 3 Mb left during the update. I already increased the size of the account after it. I haven't modified anything. It's a default WP installation with a team and BPS.

    line 167 is:
    -----------------------------------
    _e('<font color="red">

    A valid BPS .htaccess file was NOT found in your wp-admin folder. Either you have not activated BulletProof Mode for your wp-admin folder yet or the version of the wp-admin htaccess file that you are using is n

    Yeah there is nothing wrong with the coding in the BPS functions.php file. I debug everything before releasing any new versions. This is isolated to your website. And yep if you were out of space then it is possible that you would see a parse error. The parse error in itself is odd though and i suspect that you just need to add a PHP handler to force PHP5 to run on your website.

    How can I get my site back online? I think there is nothing wrong with the server because all other sites are all still running and online? Is there an easy way to bypass BPS so I the website can go live again?

    Just manually delete the bulletproof-security folder and the .htaccess files until you figure out what is wrong with your website.

    I see that your SAPI is LiteSpeed. Is it configured for DSO or CGI? Ugh you have SingleHop as your web host. I have looked at the backend of SingleHop hosting before and I have nothing good to say about it.

    the site went corrupt during the update of BPS. So you say that if I delete everything of BPS, WP will work againg?

    The site did not go corrupt after installing BPS. Your site is misconfigured either directly by you or directly by your web host (most likely your host). The way you phrased this it makes it sound like there is something wrong with BPS and that is not the case at all. ALL BPS version releases are debugged and extensively tested on ALL WordPress site types (Single Sites, Network / MU and Giving WordPress Its Own Directory) before being officially released. The problem is with your specific website configuration.

    Glad to hear you have decided to move on to another web host. I don't like saying negative things about other people or services so I prefer just to say that i have nothing good to say. ;)
    Thanks,
    Ed
