What happens if you move your database into this "examples" directory?
Can you access it then?

As far as I understand, unix OS's have recursive permissions. The file
might have the correct permissions, but if the directory that file
lives in does not, you still can't access it.
What are the permission of each of the following directories. And who
is the owner and group?


Also, how do you connect to the database? Via IP address or direct
path (local access)?

Have you ever seen such a ridiculous error message - check the
screenshot again. :-) I always laugh when I see that. Like any user
will know what that means. :-)
