I've been hoping to fix thsi via mythweb, but it's throwing errors right
*Fatal error: Cannot redeclare get_backend_setting() (previously
declared in /home/www/seiner/html/mythweb/includes/utils.php:79) in
/home/www/seiner/html/mythweb/includes/mythbackend.php on line 73
It worked under 0.21; I must have broken something in the upgrade.....
*Anyway, back to my original question:
Is there some way that I can edit the database without mucking about
with mysql directly?
A simple CLI client that could be scripted?

It is not this day!
This day we ride!
