I have had another go with this today but the same message keeps coming back
I can't see what other permissions the maintenance scripts need

Thanks for replying, I hadn't filled out the details in adminsettings.php.
I created a new database user and put the account details in that file and
re-ran the rebuild script, it came back with a message saying the user I had
created didn't have permission.
I gave the user the following privileges
Are there any other privileges it needs?
Make sure AdminSettings.php is present and contains correct username and
password settings as per AdminSettings.sample.
Note that rebuildIndex.php requires ALTER TABLE permission (iirc) to
drop and re-add the fulltext index.
