Thanks. I searched on my initial problem (permissions not staying as I set them) and found some usefull comments. It was only recently that I suspected the MySQL version issue. Maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree anyway. I've tried searching using variations of MySQL, 3.x, 4.x, version etc but can't find anything relating to this. I'm probably not phrasing my search parameters very well. Do you have a hint as to what else to search on to find the discussion you were thinking of?
