That's a good clue...
Check that those files exist:
should return a bunch of files... and one of them should be "config.php" Moreover "config.php" should be readable by the server (permissions should be something like -rwxr--r--). Then make sure that the directory "adodb" exists, and has read permissions. Then check what is inside that directory:
There should be ~36 files (and "adodb.inc.php" should be one of them), with permissions like "-rw-r--r--". If this directory is empty, probably means that when you did the copy operation, you didn't copy recursively. (In the instructions, step 4.a. did you put the "-r" switch on the copy operation?)
If all of the files are present and have proper permissions, then it may mean that your PHP-mysql config is the problem. The most common problem is the mysql modules being installed but not activated. To do so you edit the file "/etc/php5/apache2/php.ini" (assuming you are using PHP 5.x and apache 2.x):
And make sure that you have lines that look like:
sudo nano /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini
(The lines may already have been added, so do a quick search. It is likely that they (also) appear in the file, commented out with a ; in front of them. If they don't appear elsewhere, you can remove the ; and save the file.) Remember you need to restart apache after making any change to that file. (Reboot computer or just do "sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart".)
You're very welcome. Let me know whether those suggestions work out...
