I just downloaded the libDatabase archive from my server and noticed  
that the recipes stack assumes that the libDatabase and  
libDatabaseObjects stacks are loaded in memory.  I just updated the  
recipes.rev stack so that the above two stacks are substacks of it.   
So if you download the new archive from:


you just have to:

1) use the include recipesdump_mysql.sql file to create the database
2) open recipes.rev and follow the directions that will appear.

I also saved the stacks as pre 2.7 files.
