    Hi,

    My blog is currently showing the following error message:

    Warning: Unexpected character in input: ”’ (ASCII=39) state=1 in /home6/sandybun/public_html/index.php on line 17

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘.’ in /home6/sandybun/public_html/index.php on line 17

    I would try uploading a fresh copy of index.php – sounds like it’s been corrupted. Let me know if that helps,

    Thanks! Where do I find a fresh copy?

    From the WordPress download link

    Download the file, extract/unzip it, and there will be an index.php file in the folder.

    Thanks – Does it matter if I am using a custom template?

    No. The index file as at the root of your WordPress installation. Your template is inside the wp-content/themes folder.

    actually, thinking on this some more, there are two index files – one at the root of your WP installation, and one in your theme. If it is the one in your theme, you’d have to get a copy of the theme index file and replace that one.
