In-Reply-To (200708272207-l7RM7Jhj025819-relay2-cso-uiuc-edu)
OK, I can answer part of my own question below now. The key.db and
users.db files distributed
with the OS X have Intel machine byte order, which means that they
can't be read by the software
compiled for use on a PowerPC. I managed to create a functioning
users.db file by simply deleting
the existing one and trying to access a password protected section of
the Administration Page, which
caused Greenstone to create a new users.db file with the correct byte
order. That specific problem is
solved, but I'm wondering what problems will be resulting from key.db
and history.db not being readable,
and whether there's a simple way to convert them to the proper byte
order.

Any help on question 2 still appreciated.
