Thank-you Falko, I have never done a MySQL authentication before but I guess there is a first time for every thing.
I will wipe my ububtu 6.06 and go to Sarge 3.1 r4 and give this one a go.
I am building this to replace an older box, When I get to
INSERT INTO `users` (`email`, `password`, `quota`) VALUES ('email@example.com', ENCRYPT('secret'), 10485760);
(Please take care you use the ENCRYPT syntax in the second INSERT statement in order to encrypt the password!)
Can I use pre encrypted passwords (from a Webmin export file)
