Hi, I'm posting here as the WordPress.org forums seem a little neglected and the main CC site is for paying customers.
I use Comet Cache free on quite a few client sites. No issues so far until today when I went to update one site. It was fine when I last viewed it about a month ago but today it's a whitescreen, no access to front or back end.
After enabling debugging I'm getting this:
Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in /home4/XXXX/public_html/XXXX/wp-content/advanced-cache.php on line 8
which seems to indicate an issue with Comet Cache?
I've tried the usual whitescreen fixes with no joy. I've manually replaced WordPress and manually deleted Comet Cache, the latter then causes a different, but similar error from another plugin. I've replaced the site with the oldest available backup, same issue.
The most likely culprits are Comet Cache, Autoptimize or Bulletproof Security, and given the initial error I'm starting here. Does anyone have any ideas? One strange thing I've noticed is that there aren't any htaccess files anywhere, where BPS adds them to root and wp-admin. Something weird has gone on but as I can't reach the client I'm having to go in blind for now.
Any help or pointers very much appreciated.
