Problems installing LJ code for local lj server

I'd really like to get lj code working on my server, but I'm having trouble with apache and mysql. Any advice would be appreciated.

Ok.. so I get everything installed. All the perl modules, reconfigure apache with the modules enabled and moving mime_magic above mime_mod, installed mysql and can run the command line 'mysql -uroot' and connect to the lj database without a problem, even run a status command and it all LOOKS ok (can you tell I'm new to db stuff?) But I have a couple problems when following the directions, my two current problems are as follows:

1. lj can't connect to mysql when I run the update-db.pl command
:/home/lj# bin/upgrading/update-db.pl --runsql --populate
Can't connect to the database (clust#0), so I can't update it.
Only thing I can guess is that it wants cluster 0 and the config file starts with cluster 1, but I tinkered with that and it wouldn't work either. Help?

2. apache doesn't like it.. not sure what's wrong but this is what I get when I try to pull up the journal site:
You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

One thing of note, it said creating the lj user was optional, so I didn't. All the lj files are owned by the apache user/group.
