Subject: Update to Greebo persistently fails
I have been trying to upgrade to Greebo since it was released - original, a and now b - and every time I get the same failure. On start, the following error appears:

"Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[' in /home/ROOT/public_html/ROOT.com/MPP/inc/common.php on line 310"

...and I can get no further. Only restoring the immediately prior version fixes things. I wouldn't care, as the (wonderful) tool is fully functional on the older build, but the persistent annoying notices to update and the likelihood there's a few features I'd find useful keep me trying. (I've replaced domain and site names with ROOT in that string.)

I thought it might be because my host (SiteGround) was running an older version of PHP, but they just updated to 7.1. I spent an hour updating (and then de-updating) only to receive the exact same error.

What can I do to fix this and accommodate updates?

Did you check the actual PHP version via the function phpinfo()?

By Patreon.com a few eurons can be fed into the code phasers of
the DokuWiki engine. Besides, Andi's posts are worth reading.

Bingo. Still showing v5.53 despite notice that it's been updated.

Will an update to 7.x fix this glitch?

ETA: Nevermind. Updating that host segment to 7.1 fixed everything. I never thought to check and see if the announced update was actually done; SiteGround apparently (and sensibly) left it up to site managers to flip the switch themselves. It did break another site on an aging platform; off to fix that next.

Greebo requires PHP 5.6 at least.
