    Default Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '*' trying to upgrade 4.2.4 to 4.2.5

    As requested...

    Tried to upgrade from 4.2.4 to 4.2.5.

    Upgrade immediately failed with 'Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '*' in /home/xxxxx/domains/glasses/public_html/includes/functions.php on line......'

    Read that the version of PHP currently on Ubuntu Server 14.04.5 LTS, 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.21, wasn't a high enough version of PHP to support 4.2.5 so installed PHP 5.6. Forum just white paged. Other PHP using sites on server still worked ok.

    Rolled everything back from backup to restore forum.

    Just wonder what I could try to resolve the issue?

    you need to be running at least php 5.6, those errors mean you are not. just update your php version!
