It's most likely a MySQL permissions problem. Use the interactive client
(mysql) to give yourself permission:

grant all on zoneDB.zone to yourself@% identified by "password"

This allows a user called 'yourself' to do anything (insert, update, delete
etc) to the table 'zone' (which is in the database 'zoneDB'). The user
'yourself' can login from anywhere and must use the password 'password'.

See the MySQL docs for more info.
