Syntax Error WordPress

After performing a regular, routine "change of site address" on a wordpress site, I get the following error when refreshing the index of the website:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE in /home/mtiadmin/mentaltoughnessinc.com/index.php on line 17

I performed all the changes just like usual, nothing different ...Can someone help me out?

http://mentaltoughnessinc.com -- where the blog is SUPPOSED to be live (and where you'll see the error)

http://mentaltoughnessinc.com/mtisite -- where wordpress files are located


<?php
/**
* Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn't do anything, but loads
* wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme.
*
* @package WordPress
*/

/**
* Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
*
* @var bool
*/
define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);

/** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . ‘/mtisite/wp-blog-header.php' );


--- I fixed it ... There was an incorrect ' quotation used for some reason??

THANK YOU ALL

Arnav Joy comments:

no this is wrong file I think , I need the file which is at root of your site , same place where wp-content / wp-admin etc. exits .
and its code should be

<?php
/**
* Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn't do anything, but loads
* wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme.
*
* @package WordPress
*/

/**
* Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
*
* @var bool
*/
define('WP_USE_THEMES', true);

/** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
require( dirname( __FILE__ ) . '/wp-blog-header.php' );

Fahad Murtaza comments:

Are you sure its the code for

<blockquote> /home/mtiadmin/mentaltoughnessinc.com/index.php </blockquote>

?


Fahad Murtaza comments:

Glad that you solved it. This error always happens in such cases as you discovered yourself.


Emilia Farrace comments:

I'm going to donate the $$ to the community pot, if that's okay? I appreciate the time spent to answer though ...

Try replacing the index.php file on the site from the original blog?

You are sharing the code of the index.php from the admin folder. Paste the code of the index.php in the root.
