@Alan, nice. ; )

The only other things to be sure about are

1) The admin user actually exists.
2) The admin user is not disabled.
3) The admin user is actually a super user.

If you have had a situation where someone else was in control over the
server, they may have (smartly) disabled or completely removed the "admin"
user. Otherwise, you may need to develop a more comprehensive script to
inject a user into the database if the "admin" user does not exist at all.

Jason
