Hi JB,

I got it to work this way on a Win2K machine ; while
that's not a Linux box, the procedure ought to be
similar.

It is probably easiest if you toss the following files
in the same directory as the rev cgi-engine :
- revdb-Linux
- dbmysql.so
- dbodbc.so
- dboracle.so
- dbpostgresql.so

You can find the *.so files in your Revolution
directory, in the subdir
  \components\global environment\database_drivers\

If the $PATH environment variable includes the
directory with the rev cgi-engine and these files, it
ought to work fine, and you won't even need to use the
'revSetDatabaseDriverPath' command.

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
