Concrete 184.108.40.206 upgrade needs to be completed under PHP 7.3, which broke the site
I did a little research myself, and I started the upgrading process to 220.127.116.11, but since the website is broken, I could not log in as admin and complete the upgrade process. Therefore, my website remains broken.
When I look at the PHP error log, it is causing a MySQL login problem. It smells like the upgrade was incomplete and selecting the wrong set of codes.
Error: Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in
I am in contact with his Portland labs support through zendesk, but they could not help and told me to open a discussion here.
My business relies on this website, and this is a critical mission. I would appreciate your help.

I then copied the define update code in the config/site.php to the old server
Cleared cache on old server.
Issues will arise with plugins but this core will work will php7.3
I am available to help people with this in the future just pm me.
Most 5.6 sites databases are really bloated and a bit of a spring clean can reduce the database size from literally 100's of megabytes to just a few.
Same with the file system, many of the files in the files/cache and files/tmp folders are redundant and need to be removed.
The core code still generates a few warnings that make the error log grow fast, so I fixed the code (trivial).
There were two add-on modules that were causing major problems: Textile (text markup language) and Formidable.
Textile could be brought to work again with a few fixes.
There are a few fixes to Formidable found on the forum but they didn't make the addon module work again. I emailed the seller but didn't get a response. This addon seems difficult to run under PHP 7.3.
