You might want to do a bit of environment variable viewing to see if your 
Web Server setup is the same as your telnet setup. e.g. same machines and DBs.

If you have PHP you can use <?phpinfo()?>, if you are using perl I have a 
few hacked routines to throw global variables to the screen.

Compare the output to you telnet/ssh command line information. Once you 
have confirmed both sides are using the same machine and DB, we'll have to 
think of a different route. (e.g. It could be quite possible that the ISP 
has moved your account to a new box and your telnet/ssh is going to the 
olde box.)
