SER/SERWeb Howto...

Dan Austin
The log was overwritten, but the general format was along these lines:
ser (error reading communications packet)
serro (error reading communications packet)

repeated 3~6 times per attempt to logon with a client, or make changes
through SERWeb.

  That is not a problem, It was just an idea, simply write in your

 I personaly use 3.23.52 for development, but I am sure that 3.23.36 works, we use it.
 What kind of communication error did you get ? Could you send me some error logs ?

  3.23.36 works for us, but we set the permissions in a little bit different way
  (not by the ser_mysql script), but at least communication between ser and mysql seems
  to work fine.
