Hi Scott

Everything is running on the same server. I've even tried changing localhost 
to but didn't think that'd matter. It didn't.

The following program even works. This means that the problem must be related 
to RT3 or the perl installation, but I'm at a loss as to what


#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use DBI;

die $DBI::errstr unless ($dbh);
