 Description  « Hide
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 }

After continous attempts at upgrading, the user realized having a '$' character at the end of their chosen password was causing a problem.

{ I have solved my problem. In my case, the password I was using ended with a '$' character. Evidently, at some point the password field was used without being sanitized. As a result, the password in the config file was incorrect and the subsequent db config variables were omitted, eg: name= persistent= mysql4_compatibility= Correcting these values in the config file didn't help matters any because they just got destroyed again when trying to proceed with the installation. The only thing I could do was change the password and start over. }

Further details:

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
