Have you tried seeing whether you can use AcePerl to connect directly to
the database (rather than the server). I.e.
$local = Ace->connect (-path =>/some/path/to/database/);
If this works then it would suggest it is a server problem, if this
doesn't work then maybe it is a file permissions problem.
