Thanks Jason for your prompt reply. After following your instructions, I'm no longer greeted by the login page so the validation must be OK. But now the pop-up window states:
alert("MDB2 Error: no such table\nselect * from wafm2_parameters")
As though it's looking for a database that doesn't exist. Should I look for this database to see if it has been created?
Also server is running PHP version 5.3
Thank you for your help
