[Mediawiki-l] dumpBackup.php

I'm getting this error when I try to dump all current pages with the command
(from my wiki root directory):

php ./maintenance/dumpBackup.php --current > outfile

DB connection error: Unknown error

I'm thinking this must be a permissions problem, so I chowned all the
relevant php files to root, but I still get that error.  I can't find
anything online about this issue - help appreciated.


php 5
Mediawiki 1.8.1
mysql 4.0.24
Freebsd 5.4
