I am getting Parse error: syntax error, unexpected 'class' (T_CLASS), expecting identifier (T_STRING) or variable (T_VARIABLE) or '{' or '$' in /path to installation/ow_core/developer_tools.php on line 376

Apache Version2.4.16PHP Version5.5.36MySQL Version5.6.29

Tried a reinstall and that didn't work, either.

Now what?

Well Amy lets see if we can dehose you...   sorry your having issues.  I am surprised you are getting that error with running php 5.5.   Are you sure that is your version, how did you check the version?

Amy, please check your php version via phpinfo to make sure that you really have 5.5 php version

It wasn't, even though that's what was listed as running. I upped the version and put the old config.php back and the site came back.

Is there any way of putting in the update notification that server requirements have changed and should be reviewed?

Also, I have to update through softaculous. Oxwall doesn't update for me within the installation.
