Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PEAR itself. For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PEAR, please
visit http://pear.php.net/support/ as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions.

Thank you for your interest in PEAR.

As a member of the RoundCube team I take the liberty to bogus this on
PEAR. ;-)

I use Roundcubemail version 0.5.1 which ships an unknown version of
MDB2. In IRC #roundcube on freenode this was confirmed but nobody knew
the exact version of MDB2. Any version information in the MDB2 files are

However I've just experienced problems using SQLite as DB for RC. I set
correct permission on the file for the Apache to work with the file. But
I forgot to give write permissions on the folder containing the file.
This makes SQLite fail. I could confirm this by configuring RC to use
another SQLite file (actually another hard link to the very same file)
and RC worked perfectly.

I suggest MDB2 should check write permissions on the directory 1 level
up from the SQLite file to give better error messages. In my case MDB2
reported "unknown error" which took me some time to find the reason.

Test script:
Install RC correctly and set it up to use an SQLite file as DB. Disable
write permissions for the Apache user on the directory the file is in
and find that RC doesn't work anymore.

I suppose it should work with any MDB2 app.

Expected result:
Useful error message or working MDB2. I am not quite sure why one cannot
work with the DB if write permissions on the dir are missing.

Actual result:
MDB2 failing with unknown error in RC's log.
