I'd love to try this script but it won't install. What is an install_driver? I entered my username for the database and the password where it says install_driver but that must be wrong.
I get the following message:
install_driver(password) failed: Can't locate DBD/password.pm in @INC (@INC contains: $wanted_path /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/BSDPAN /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8/mach /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8/mach /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.8 .) at (eval 7) line 3.
Perhaps the DBD::password perl module hasn't been fully installed,
or perhaps the capitalisation of 'password' isn't right.
Available drivers: DBM, ExampleP, File, Gofer, Proxy, SQLite2, Sponge, mysql.
at install.cgi line 34
Not sure what to do.

If you have your own server with command-line access, you should install DBD::password by doing the following:
It will then look for dependencies and install the relevant perl modules.
If you have a hosted server, probably you are stuck. You might be able to ask your host to install the missing perl modules, but more than likely they'll refuse.
Hope that helps!
Lol. Forget that about the cpan. Helps if I read the error correctly. ;-)
I guess the driver you want is mysql if you have access to a MySQL database.
