Not Solved Upgrade from 1.8.6 to 1.8.22
#1
Not Solved
I needed to upgrade to 1.8.22 so I could upgrade to php 7.3 to run another website on my server.

When I first tried to upgrade I accidentally wiped out my forum because I didn't realize I was doing a clean install instead of the upgrade. The drop down menu and the button to do an upgrade never appeared until I copied my previous config file into the inc directory.

Now, I can get the dropdown menu and do the upgrade. It seems like I had to hit the Next button several times to get the upgrade to continue in the same spot. But it did finally upgrade. 

But when I go to run the forum, I immediately get the Can't launch SQL error. Or the 500 error.

I reverted to 1.8.6 and started the process again. Again copying in my config file. Again hitting the next button several times in what seemed the same spot.

This time I received this error "Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '}', expecting end of file in /hermes/bosnaweb20a/b1470/ipw.brotherh/public_html/doomForum/index.php on line 398"

I don't know if you need this, but the forum is at brotherhoodofdoom.com/doomForum and I run it on the iPower servers.

What should I do to fix this problem?
