Before the update I had a working mythweb.  Now I get this message.  I
don't understand why updating breaks stuff.  Anyway, here is what I

Database Access Denied

You are most likely receiving this message because you
have failed to configure mythweb's database login info.

Please see INSTALL for instructions.

I did some research and see others with this problem.  They say they
made their passwords the same in a file I don't have and they didn't
say which they changed or what the other file was so that wasn't a lot
of help.  The instructions talk about setting permissions which look
right.  I don't know what to do.

I followed another post which talked about the .htaccess file
I found mine was a link:
.htaccess -> /etc/mythtv/mythweb-htaccess

dad at myth_desktop:/etc/mythtv$ ls -al /etc/mythtv/

-rw-r--r--   1 root   root    1190 2009-01-15 17:32 session-settings.save

It isn't there.

I have been messing with this for about an hour and am totally
confused by the INSTALL document and its references to files that I
don't have.

Help would be appreciated.
