Sorry should have included that information the first time.

rb-site install /var/www/xxxxx

The first time through it failed because the DB user was not ready for
use (you should have an extra page in the installer to separate the
end of the data entry with the start of the install process otherwise
there is no indication what is the final step). So I removed the /var/
www/xxxxx directory and ran again.

The database is Mysql, I have verified I can log in manually using the
mysql client as the reviewboard user. I can see that there are 40 odd
tables created in the allocated database. When I run the upgrade this
is what I get:
rb-site upgrade /var/www/xxxxx
Rebuilding directory structure
Updating database. This may take a while.
Installing json fixture 'initial_data' from '/usr/lib/python2.5/site-
Installed 7 object(s) from 1 fixture(s)
No evolution required.

It runs fast so I don't think it is doing anything to the DB.
