SUCCESS!!! Thank you for the help. Somehow I completely missed that master database file in the master folder. Finished configuring everything, started up the master server, logged in, checked out the quest girls, killed a few wolves and zombies, took a stroll down to the beach, and everything was good. Had a little lag here and there but to be expected when I am running world server, master server, apache, mysql all on a single virtual machine installed on a four year old laptop with two gig ram it is sharing between the host OS and ubuntu. Now to walk myself back through everything getting the master up and running and put it all in a tutorial complete with all the side utilities I used to make the whole process a little more friendly. I'll post that up once it's done and then move on to building a new world from scratch. My idea right now is something along the lines of creating a basic capture the flag type game with some samples of various game functions (quests, bank, npc's, skills, etc) while hitting on how to use all the tools and third party free apps to accomplish it all. I want to build something others could walk through and then take and customize and make it their own and end up with something that might be fun for a small group to enjoy while teaching how to do it all from scratch.
Once again, thank you. I was about to tear my hair out yesterday. I'll be back I'm sure with more questions as I go through this and start looking through the source and at the tools.
