Hello, thank you for contacting us.

It looks like you had an issue with your environment. Could you please send me a private message with the email address you used to register? I will manually fix it for you.

Hi all - Romain reset my environment on Friday, however I am still not able to set up the Apachelog index. He is now on paternity leave - can anyone else assist? Thanks!

Thank you for your help!

Something is off with your environment. Can you please DM me with your e-mail so we can try to replace your environment?
