I am getting the following error when doing the first bracket update:
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 's',`6`='Valparaiso',`7`='',`8`='',`9`='Southern U.',`10`='Pittsburgh',`11`='',`1' at line 1
Been using the script for years with no issues. Have the latest version installed. Where do I need to look?
It appears to be an issue with an apostrophe in a team name
See this thread for the fix https://sourceforge.net/projects/tourney/forums/forum/1092265/topic/3616820
It was also fixed in a later version
There are many ways to deal with this issue. For example, I chose to add to admin/update.php the following line:
$losers = array_map('mysql_real_escape_string', $losers);
just before line 159.
This line escapes the entries and allows apostrophes to be used in team names just as was done in the early part of update.php.
