I had a total crash and the server guy gave me all my data in a hand basket.. just kidding..

Actually I was given the data all zipped up and the mysql data bases were separate and they were the direct downloads as follows:
all data was in this format.
I used SSH and uploaded it to the proper directory on the server and all is well at least as far as visitors seeing all the data.. but when I log into the site I get the following...

WordPress database error: [Table 'wp_options' is read only]
UPDATE wp_options SET option_value = 'O:9:\"magpierss\":18:{s:6:\"parser\";i:0;s:12:\"current_item\";a:0:{}s:5:\"items\";a:10:{i:0;a:12:{s:5:\"title\";s:13:\"WordPress 2.2\";s:4:\"link\";s:54:\"http://wordpress.org/development/2007/05/wordpress-22/

I used SSH and tried to change the concerned files to writable and it works fine but the same error is generated.

I can go direct to the data base using myAdmin and cannot edit (write) to any table. It says the data base is read only.

On the same mysql area, I have another data base that was done via the normal way and I can write to it just fine.

I can find nothing to change to make the site writeable.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated..

SSH to the server and changing the files to writable has no effiect..
