Thanks for reply. It seems like the format I have is 'too' old for the
newest p4d as I get the following message:

>   Perforce server error:
>           Database open error on db.config!
>           BTree db.config from an older server version - 2013.2 or earlier    
And now when I check the FTP, I cannot find p4d anywhere in these older
versions:   ftp://ftp.perforce.com/perforce/r13.2/bin.macosx106x86_64/

Is there something I could still do?
