I get a http 500 error when running the converter after I installed SMF 2.0.19.  Any ideas?

Check your server's error log for details on the error.

For privacy reasons, I removed some info and replaced it with "xxx".  I can PM you the entire thing if needs be.  Thank you so much in advance!

This error means that curly braces method to get individual characters inside a string has been deprecated since php 7.4.

What is the code around line 2813 in the convert.php file? The solution would be to change curly braces {} to []

Alternatively, since that is probably not the only occurrence of such, you could downgrade PHP to a version that accepts it for the duration of the process.
