Hi, my forum has been so good for so long I've forgotten how to fix it!!!  Pls check this error and set me in the right direction.  Many thanks.

: Table 'smf_settings' is read only


Double-check the permissions for the database user. While MySQL does let you set permissions for individual tables, most control panels don't have an interface for this.

If you can't figure it out, talk to your host.

Thank YOU for the reply and glad to say this is fixed.  Turns out the web host somehow globally changed permissions on all users ouch!!!  Thanks again.
