Error with Current

Message I am trying to get things up and running using the installation.txt as a
guide and the current-1.5.8-1.rpm. I get to "Run: cinstall initdb" and
receive the following error:

[root@VM-RHAS3U1-1 root]# cinstall initdb
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/sbin/cinstall", line 191, in ?
main()
File "/usr/sbin/cinstall", line 158, in main
db.selectBackend(config)
File "/usr/share/current/​db/__init__.py", line 34, in selectBackend
raise Exception("unknown backend type")
Exception: unknown backend type

Here is a copy of my current.conf:

[current]
log_file = /var/log/current.log
log_level = 1
apache_config_file = /etc/httpd/conf.d/cu​rrent.httpd.conf
access_type = user
access_arg = apache
current_dir = /export/current
# The 'db' is which backend we're using
db_type=sqlite
# db_type = postgres
# db_user and db_pass should be obvious
# db_user = <user>
# db_pass = <password>
# db_name is the name of the database - what oracle calls a 'SID'
# db_name = <instance>
# db_host = <hostname>

# These are some text messages that the server can return to the clients
# in various API calls.
## The period is there to provide a "blank line". Sheesh.
welcome_message = "Welcome to current, an open source server for up2date."
privacy_statement = "Privacy Statement:
This is site specific, and you should change this message to match
your actual site."

server_id = <REPLACE ME!>
server_secret = <REPLACE ME, TOO!>

## END OF LINE ##


I have verified that sqlite is working correctly, I manually created a
new database. I am probably missing something simple. Please help.

Thanks,
Erik
