Sorry it has taken so long to respond. There were no errors in the php. I copied & pasted from the HowTo this time just to be sure.
While I was looking around for possible answers I discovered your HowTo for Fedora 13x64. Since I have virtually no experience with Debian & I prefer RedHat/Fedora anyway, I decided to try to set up the Fedora version. So far so good. I do have a few questions, but I'll post those under a new, appropriate thread.
