Fatal error - dog rescue charity

Post by LemonieL » Tue Apr 23, 2019 10:06 am

A good many years ago I set up a website for a local dog rescue charity and to say I am rusty is an understatement. Unfortunately it's just me to try and fix this for them so I really could do with some help.

I added an sql database which has worked perfectly but is now throwing up the following error.

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare connection() (previously declared in /var/sites/h/homelesshounds.org.uk/public_html/[removed]/index.php:13) in /var/sites/h/homelesshounds.org.uk/public_html/[removed]/plugins/[removed].php on line 14

I have gone into the cPanel and followed the path but I cannot view/edit any text in both the destination files. Am not sure where to proceed from here. Can anybody help?
