That was a different error, and I had fixed that.

    moseley at bumby:~/ServerDB$ fgrep YAML lib/ServerDB.pm 
    use YAML ();
    ServerDB->config( YAML::LoadFile('/home/moseley/ServerDB/ServerDB.yml') );

    moseley at bumby:~/ServerDB$ cat ServerDB.yml 
    --- #YAML:1.0

      password_hash: sha
      role_class: ServerDB::M::CDBI::Role

      user_field: username
      user_role_class: ServerDB::M::CDBI::UserRole

I think I've changed all the paths:

moseley at bumby:~/ServerDB$ fgrep -R /moseley/ .

./lib/ServerDB/Script/CDBI.pm:my $dsn = "DBI:SQLite2:/home/moseley/ServerDB/ServerDB.db";
./lib/ServerDB.pm:ServerDB->config( YAML::LoadFile('/home/moseley/ServerDB/ServerDB.yml') );
./ServerDB.yml:dsn: dbi:SQLite2:/home/moseley/ServerDB/ServerDB.db
./ServerDB.yml:plucene_dir: '/home/moseley/ServerDB/plucene'
./ServerDB.yml:root: '/home/moseley/ServerDB/root'

moseley at bumby:~/ServerDB$ fgrep -R /andy/ .


Still same error:

Again, I don't have a separate module: ServerDB::M::CDBI::User in the
