Uprading to Beta 5...


Well-known member
In barely 5 seconds of upgrading, I got this error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end, expecting ')' in /home/"account"/public_html/mw2forums.com/library/XenForo/ControllerPublic/Abstract.php on line 125

However after refreshing; The site shows the "The board is currently being upgraded. Please check back later." message. So, everything's good now, smooth.

This is not a support question or anything, I just want to let the devs know what problems I encountered.

That looks like a file problem. The default files should not have syntax errors. I suggest you upload the new files again.

Based on the fact that it went away after a refresh, the likely means that the file was being uploaded at the time. FTP isn't atomic, so if you access your site while files are being overwritten, you run the risk of triggering parse errors and inconsistent state.
