Site doesn't load after upgrading WordPress

===== Update: Problem Solved. Just need to wait for the PHP upgrade to complete.====

I login my wordpress site and there was a notification for WordPress update. So I clicked to update the WordPress, together with some plugins, including AWeber for WordPress. Now the site won't load, the error message is:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING or '(' in /home/content/51/5577751/html/wp-content/plugins/aweber-web-form-widget/aweber.php on line 2

 

Based on Google search, it seems that my PHP is still at 5.2. So I upgrade PHP to 5.6. Same Error.

The simple solution is to disable the AWeber plugin.

 

You should also upgrade to PHP 7.2 or higher
