Hi @studiogrynn,

The Beta Tester plugin currently (and has for ~5months) requires PHP 5.3+ due to the use of a anonymous function.

I'd suggest updating the version of PHP you're using to something newer (than PHP 5.2) - to regain access to your admin panel, you can also forcibly disable the plugin by deleting the wordpress-beta-tester plugin folder via FTP.

It makes sense for the plugin to support PHP 5.2 though, since WordPress does (and we want PHP 5.2 testers), cc @mlteal / @afragen (since you were the last two committers to touch it)

@dd32 I can have it fixed in the next few hours.
