    Hey everyone!

    I’ve recently come across an issue whilst attempting to update my functions.php file via my Appearance > Editor section.

    Please see screenshot here of live error:

    Important things to note:

    1 – I’ve recently upgraded my Siteground hosting from GoBig to GoGeek

    2 – I’ve recently changed my DNS settings to work with Cloudflare (as suggested), but there was no issue after I did this.

    3 – I disabled all my plugins, and still the error was happening.

    4 – I run the Genesis + Genesis sample theme

    5 – I edited the functions.php file via the SiteGround FTP application in the cPannel. However, those changes did not reflect inside my WordPress Dashboard Appearance > Editor > Functions.php file

    Therefore, I feel like potentially with my new hosting upgrade, a ‘link’ has been broken not letting this file be updated correctly.

    If anyone can help me identify the actions or even a fix for this issue I would be so grateful, as it’s currently stopping me from updating my site.

    Have a great weekend!

    So half asleep me forgot to update my DNS records in Cloudflare after I upgraded my hosting.

    This was related to changing the IP address associated with many of my DNS records.

    After I did this error was gone, so in case anyone else has this error thats the fix!

    sorry, i’m newbie, how do you change IP on your DNS record? I’ve the same issue, yesterday i swithc on Cloudfare and today i can’t write on my file function.php
