Well, as the error messages indicate, there seems to be a problem with
permissions. Check to make sure all your db files are readable, and the
directories leading up to them are executable, by the user ID under which
apache runs.

I'd much prefer that questions of this sort went to the list rather than
just to me, so others could benefit from it as well (and so others would
have a chance to reply). For this reason, I'm cc'ing the list.
