Thanks that was it - just had to chmod 755 on the database directory and
then went into the database directory and did a chmod 755 *.*. So now
when I mysql edutime I don't get an error message and I can describe
each table fine.
Is it ok to chnmod 755 on all these files or should I use another
Don't want to give anyone access to all these files.
