are you reporting terminal commands or did you actually use the gui for the settings?

Did you try to edit the conf manualy before using the tools?
If so, check your syntax, it often happens that people forget a semicolon or space here and there.

Nope, because I'm not familiar with it. I had to do that once before with F15, but I had to find out how to edit it on the Web. However, some magic happened because it started working. It started working when I set the parameters throught the Configuration Editor in Apps.

Thanks for your help.
