php-syslog-ng: Help needed desperately...

Has anybody seen this tool? It is awesome. check out
http://vw.vermeer.org/ . It's a php front end for large-scale syslog
deployments. It makes managing syslog in large networks a snap.

The idea is to fifo pipe network syslog into a MySQL database backend.
The php scripts reference the database, and print stuff to the screen.

My Info -> RH9.0 , MySQL 4.0.14, apache1.3.28

I have successfully gotten everything installed, compiled, etc. The
syslog is going to the MySQL database quite nicely. The problem, is
that retreivals are failing completely. When I try to do a search in
the database, I get the following errors...


Warning: Unknown(/usr/local/apache/htdocs/results.php): failed to open
stream: Permission denied in Unknown on line 0

Warning: (null)(): Failed opening
'/usr/local/apache/htdocs/results.php' for inclusion
(include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in Unknown on line 0

I am happy to post my phpinfo(); if necessary. Everything is pretty
much right out of the box. I am happy to send screenshots if needed...

My pear list is
[root@localhost bin]# pear list
Installed packages:
Package Version State
Archive_Tar 0.9 stable
Console_Getopt 1.0 stable
DB 1.3 stable
HTTP 1.2 stable
Mail 1.0.1 stable
Net_SMTP 1.0 stable
Net_Socket 1.0.1 stable
PEAR 1.1 stable
XML_Parser 1.0.1 stable
XML_RPC 1.0.4 stable
Lastly, I thought I would just post the results.php script... I'm no
programmer, and I can't figure out what reference is failing.

thanks for all your help. I will personally send a cookie to whoever
helps me solve this problem.

The problem was that corrcet permissions were not set on the
results.php file. For the archives, make sure that the correct
permissions exist on the php files. I had copied everything out of the
archive, so it was all owned by user root with 644 permissions, save
for results.php, which was 600. I set the permissions to 644 and
everything works great.

Now I just have to figure out how to not make the plaintext
dbinfo.inc.php globally readable and I'll be set.
