Had to Disable Hummingbird

Had to delete the Hummingbird plugin folder due to the following error. Please advise.

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_FUNCTION, expecting ')' in /home4/coachmur/public_html/westcoaststreaming.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-hummingbird/core/modules/class-module-minify.php on line 526

    Hello Venture Catalysts,

    I hope you are well today.

    I've been unable to reproduce the symptoms you're seeing on 3 test sites. One running PHP 5.3.29, one running PHP 5.6.29 and one running PHP 7.0.14. I was able to successfully install and configure Hummingbird without issue. I checked the debug.log entries and there was nothing about T_FUNCTION in them.

    I suspect that you either have a bad upload of the plugin or there is a plugin conflict causing issue.

    There's a couple troubleshooting steps I'd like you to try to see if we can narrow down the cause of this problem.

    First, could you please run a plugin conflict test as outlined in the following article? This will eliminate the possibility of a conflict with another plugin. https://premium.wpmudev.org/manuals/using-wpmu-dev/getting-support/

    If that does not lead to a solution, could you please enable WP_DEBUG and provide us with the output of your debug.log file?

    To enable WP_DEBUG, change the following line in your wp-config.php file:

    define('WP_DEBUG', false);

    To this:

    // Enable WP_DEBUG mode
    define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );
    // Enable Debug logging to the /wp-content/debug.log file
    define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true );
    // Disable display of errors and warnings
    define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false );
    @ini_set( 'display_errors', 0 );

    After you've visited the pages that are causing you problems, please go to wp-content/ on your server via FTP and download the debug.log file to your local computer. Then, open that file with a text editor like notepad (Windows), GEdit (Linux), or TextEdit (Mac). You can then paste the contents of that file at http://pastebin.com/ and share the URL of the pasted output with us so we can examine it further.

    I look forward to seeing the results of your tests.

    Best regards,

    James Morris
