    Use an FTP tool such as FileZilla or your host provided file manager to upload and overwrite your theme’s function.php file…Then, make sure to do a full site files and db backup prior to any site edits…so you can quickly put files back in place with syntax or codding errors..you may also be able o ask your host if they have a backed up version they can restore.

    You can try downloading a copy of your theme to your local computer and then using FTP – replace the entire functions.php file in your theme with the new copy.

    And the morale to this story is, only edit your code via ftp as, you can quickly perform and “undo” on your ?.php page, and save it… you may experience a short outage but… I use a local server on my home equipment to “experiment” once it works locally then, try it on the server… the replace the theme is the quickest solution in your case… I concur with WP on this one…
