I have cyradm working but I had an initial problem setting a password
for user cyrus in sasl. It was a permissions thing. Permissions on
/etc/sasldb2 were originally 640 root.root. This did not allow me to add
a password so I could login to the localhost. I changed the permissions
 -rwxrwxrwx    1 root     root        12288 May 30 06:49 /etc/sasldb2*

I can now set a password using saslpasswd2 and login to localhost with

What do permissions really have to be so I can set this up correctly?
