good suggestion.. however, i would argue that danny should make sure he can
do a manual command, and that he can determine that he can actually manually
get the "php" sql command to work from the manual command line...

once he gets this, then the rest becomes fairly straight forward...

Hello Danny,
I can't go through your whole script but I recommend you use Pear::DB
as an abstraction layer for the pgsql connection and interaction.
This will give you more power with the debug and you can keep
everything simple IMHO.

It is default on PHP, so you don't even need to install anything.
