Issue with Plugin Page - ShadowedSin - 2016-11-28

I'm having an issue when checking my plugin page.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in /home/altear/lits/forum/inc/plugins/dvz_mentions.php on line 11

It is also repeating the same text on the plugins update page. Does anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it?

Oh, how does one install that?

are you using vps ? if not, you may have to ask your web host to upgrade php version

If you need to update your PHP version, you may as well update everything with sudo apt-get upgrade.

If you do not have access to the terminal, you probably have CPanel or some equivalent, in which there is sometimes an option to change your PHP version, usually left at the same version for code compatibility reasons. Simply find that option, change it to the latest and check everything still runs hunky-dory.

To temporarily solve your plugin page issue, move dvz_mentions.php outside of your plugins directory.
