Hi all

cp etc/acl.mysql ‘//www/snch/rt2/etc/acl.mysql’
/usr/bin/perl -p -i -e " s’!!DB_TYPE!!’“mysql”‘g;
s’!!DB_HOST!!’“localhost”‘g; s’!!DB_RT_PASS!!’“XXXXXXX”‘g;

The does not get granted any rights thus the install fails.
The password ist correct. What could cause that problem? I’ve only but
allways had that problem with FreeBSD. On Linux I can perfectly install rt2.

If I create a user manualy as db root connecting to localhost as the script
does, this works perfectly well, but I haven’t found out now what goes wrong
with the install script.

It’s MySQL 3.23.58
