User johnange has reported that while upgrading, the following error was seen in the log after a failed upgrade:
#! script returned false OA_UpgradePostscript_8781812a20e052460f17402b567a722e
#! Failure in upgrade postscript postscript_openads_upgrade_2.0.11_to_2.3.32_beta.php

Also has been reported when using a special character at beginning of DB password:
However, using in the middle of password didn't cause a problem
