Problem with upgrading
It just hasn't been my night tonight. I tried to upgrade my version from 5 to 6 which went well. I then tried to login to my admin and got this:

Error: GT::Template (5975): Unable to open template file '/home/****/www/cgi-bin/data/admin/templates/compiled/home.html.compiled.print'. Reason: Permission denied at /home/****/www/cgi-bin/admin/GMail/Admin.pm line 58.

I've been getting tons of error messages such as Could not unlink or Can't create lock file among many since my original installation, but the program worked, so I dealt with it, or didn't deal with it however you want to look at it!

Is this a problem that can be easily repaired or do I need to start from scratch? If so, can I keep the existing database?

Thanks for any help that can be given,

Perl Hopefull

You can easily fix this by correcting the permissions of the files and directories in the templates directories.

The files and directories in /home/****/www/cgi-bin/data/admin/templates requires sufficient permissions for the webserver to read and write to the files. The easiest way (not the most secure) way to do this is (on a *nix system):
cd /home/****/www/cgi-bin/data/admin
chmod -R 777 templates

You might also need to do the same with the user templates (ie. /home/****/www/cgi-bin/data/templates)
