Thank you so much for the answer. I'm jumping on a plane in an hour and I'll let you know what I find out when I return.

The db() stuff is baffling. I wonder if when I copied over the old asterisk.conf it now tries to put the database in a folder that doesn't exist or it doesn't have permissions for. Another thing to check when I return.
