Try setting all your variables in your default.cfg file to the physical path where your files and directories are located. I think that you may be trying to set the paths to the virtual paths, which will not work.

Try setting your variables to the following:

Code:
$db_dir_url = "http://www.tc.umn.edu/cgi-bin/do?user=thoma134&prog=dbman";
$db_script_url = "http://www.tc.umn.edu/cgi-bin/do?user=thoma134&prog=dbman/db.cgi";
$db_file_name = "/www/thoma134/cgi-bin/dbman/ default.db";
$db_id_file_name = "/www/thoma134/cgi-bin/dbman/default.count";
$auth_dir = "/www/thoma134/cgi-bin/dbman/auth";
$auth_pw_file = "/www/thoma134/cgi-bin/dbman/default.pass";
$auth_log_file = "/www/thoma134/cgi-bin/dbman/default.log";

Then in your db.cgi file, set the $db_script_path to the following:

Code:
$db_script_path = "/www/thoma134/cgi-bin/dbman";

Other than that, I don't know what to tell ya. That is a strange URL to access your cgi-bin programs in sub-directories.

The other suggestion is to pull the files down a directory to the cgi-bin directory and then changes your paths and permissions.
