Are you sure you have the right password in the mt-db-pass.cgi file? And username in mt.cfg ("DBUser")? This sounds like a simple authentication problem.


Thanks Brad.

Yes, the password is correct and matches the right user name.

But I'm sure you're right that it's something re authentication. I just haven't been able to figure out what. Yet.

So I will do the Sherlock Holmes approach, step by step, eliminating things until whatever's left, no matter how improbable it seems, has to be the solution!
