LJ Hacker seeks assistance...

I'm trying to get the LJ code up and running on a site (well, my laptop to start with - will put it somewhere sensible after I've got to grips with it all). I've got everything set up (I think - INSTALL.txt could do with updating a bit). I'm getting the following weirdness, though:

  • When I hit editinfo.bml, I get the following error:

    [Error: Can't call method "selectrow_arrayref" on an undefined value at /home/mckinlay/lj/livejournal/cgi-bin/ljlib.pl line 212. ]

    (LJHOME=/home/mckinlay/lj/livejournal, obviously)

  • Attempting to view /users/ always, without fail, generates:

    Database temporarily unavailable during maintenance.

  • Attempting to view /admin/mysql_status.bml or /admin/dbadmin.bml gives:

    Error: You don't have access to administer databases.

    Even though the user has 'admin' and 'siteadmin' (and a few more besides)

I've googled, and grepped and so forth, and turned up not a great deal. Anybody willing to throw some hints in my direction?
