        Well, gentlemen, I may finally have a clue!  The guy who set up
        my networking stuff and whatever database ports there are
        did not install mysql50-server. Just the -client side.  This
        fellow is the salt-of-the-earth type, ETC, but evidently didn't
        get into phpbb or whatever I've been trying to do.

        The -server side is building on my serious antique Kayak now.
        My thanks to both you guys; the dev.mysql.com site is chock full
        of info and should give me a boost when I try again.
