[vox-tech] Re: vox-tech digest - thanks



after grinding away at this, ne of my work mates got
it to work.
the error *seems* to have come from 
1) the config file that came with the software was
looking for the database in the wrong place
2) the permissions were not being set correctly
;Though the usr mysql was correctly changed, the group
mysql was not included in the permissions .

It now works.  Thanks to all
Andrew
