I've discovered the root of the problem I believe, but I haven't
the faintest idea what to about it...
Permissions and everything are fine, the MOO starts OK if I use
nohup moo park.db park.db.new >>& park.log &
...basically I've just discovered that I can't run C-shell
scripts from the part of the file-system that I want to move the MOO too...
If I just do a simple...
echo "This is a test"
and then chmod it +x and run it, it gives a blank line,
and not the echo command I put in the script...
Hence the 'restart' script (A C-shell script) just won't run
in this area of the file-system...
Anyone any clues (yet again) about what I should do, or what is
wrong, or even any ideas about re-writing the 'restart' script
for the Bourne shell (because Bourne shell scripts seem to work OK)...
The account I'm running it from is using the C-shell too, by the way...
Sorry to cause more trouble!
