site does not show up & can't get the admin log in screen (7 posts)

    I tried to add new php script into the Twenty Eleven: Theme Functions and broke the site.

    When I try to bring up the admin sign in screen or call up my web-site: http://ab-machinereviews.com

    So I can't call up & see my site or get the log in page - when I try this is the message I get:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '<' in /home/nrgfit/public_html/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/functions.php on line 2

    I've already tried logging back into my host to re-upload the theme, but I don't understand really how to do that. I am completely new to all this!

    Servers of several hosting companies were affected by DDoS type or similar attacks. So, most site owners will have problems temporarily.

    If your issue is not related to the above problems try doing this:

    Download a new copy of the theme to your local computer and find the functions.php file. Then using FTP or another file management system that your host uses, access the files on your site and find the theme in wp-content > themes > twentyeleven > functions - replace that file with the new one.

    If you aren't sure about FTP access, ask your hosting company for help with it - they can give you the access info for your site. And see this for the software you'll need on your computer: http://codex.wordpress.org/FTP_Clients

    I do have a copy of my theme on my computer - but I can't log into my site at all to be able to fix it?
    When I use: http://ab-machinereviews.com/admin to access the log in I get the parse syntax error message.
    So I can't access the site or any of the file at all!
    Is there any other way for me to get into the site?

    ps... my other site is on with the same host and it is totally fine - it's not a host issue.

    This issue I am having was cause by me!
    Thanks for the help

    So you need to get FTP access set up - see my post above. It's really easier than it sounds.
