Hi Dragorn,

I appreciate your reply! Thank you!

I actually got it up and running...I have no idea what was wrong...but it seems like the only way for me to run the server each time is to "make clean" and then re-make and install everything...

then it works perfectly fine...I have no idea why though...maybe you experienced developers can explain this to me lol

thanks so much for all your help!
