Followup: If I run "show tables" then while I get a list from the command line, I get nothing from php. Furthermore, if I attempt to select from a bogus tablename on the command line, I get that same error, "semantic error" and whatnot...so it looks like the real problem is that when apache/php runs hive, it doesn't see the table list.
Like I said, this used to work...so I'm sure I need to get something configured properly, I just don't remember how. I do see that I am defining HIVE_HOME in my .bashrc...Do I need to do something like this for the apache account or as a HIVE parameter?
