Hi David,

yes, for sure, after passing the final goal ... and successful reproduction on our production server;
fortunately `script` helps :)

obviously mariaDB has to be deactivated in order to allow mysql the operation!

no, but my correct updating was ignored (i.e. overridden by the 'commented' old line): as stated on https://eur03.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fhttpd.apache.org%2Fdocs%2Fcurrent%2Fen%2Fconfiguring.html&data=04%7C01%7Ceprints-tech%40ecs.soton.ac.uk%7Cf40ad7aa340a4825097108d89ad0e181%7C4a5378f929f44d3ebe89669d03ada9d8%7C0%7C0%7C637429569210519358%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=Y4Wz9aXdmXz8gix0bpn9x1HQz2Zf4rqGDWf6qoGP10s%3D&reserved=0
the comment sign has to be the very first sign in the first column ...!

fortunately the server is running behind the fire wall, so I don't have to care for this :)

Finally again, I will be back when mysql is really engaged

P.S.: What do you think about mariaDB?
