In the past few days I've had reports that users weren't able to access my site. They were just getting a blank page.
I checked the error_log and found this.
[22-Nov-2014 22:07:41 UTC] PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected end of file in /mysite/wp-includes/post.php on line 235
I was running v4.0 and I force upgraded to v4.0.1 via softaculous, that seems to of fixed the issues. Which is great for now.
My concern is what caused this.
In my site root I found a .maintenance file and I couldn't access the the upgrade folder.
I wonder if it was the site trying to auto update this security update which that failed.
Has anyone else come across this error?
