An already working Piwik installation could not be Updated due to a mysql error. Several Updates went right but not it crashed.
Complete empty Database or complete new installation with old and new databases did not work ether.

Reason:
Special Characters in the MySQL Password are saved as HTML-Encoded.
So instead of a "" in my password an "& s e c t ;" (without the spaces) was written in the config file.

In fc2718d880c37f4fd91fa4824b3b956d6326e1c0: refs #5409 #341 #5349 if a config value contains a dollar sign convert it to an html entity to prevent it being interpreted as a PHP variable. This allows us to remove the RAW ini parser flag which causes trouble on some PHP versions as the parser seems to be buggy.
