  That is *not* what I said to do.  Some amount of independent thought
is required.

  List "sql" in the "instantiate" section.  DON'T put the rest of the
text above.

  DO edit the "inner-tunnel" file.  Look for the "authorize" section.
The text above shows an EXAMPLE of what you put in the "authorize"
section.  That's why it uses the word "authorize"

  DON'T put the "..." text in the config files.  That was meant to show
that OTHER text was also in the "authorize" section.

  DON'T put the "..." text in the SQL query.  That was meant to show the
REST of the SQL query

  DO think about what you're doing.

  DO put the ENTIRE sql SELECT statement into the example text I showed

  That error is a MySQL error.  You've mis-typed the query.  Go read
MySQL documentation to see how to create a correct query.
