This thread needs to be pinned as a sticky. :pushpin: Many new users and lurkers will find it helpful in troubleshooting some of the most common issues faced with fresh installations.

What I like to do is try the opposite of something and see if it yields better results. Did you try not breaking configs? Give it a shot and report back the results so that others might benefit from a potential solution.


winnie maybe joking around, but really stop messing around and answer your emails, do your spreadsheets or what ever you use your computer for. Stop trying to tweak every little thing. It’s a rabbit hole that will never end.
