    Thanks DL, I will have to check with my dedicated server provider - maybe I already have what I need installed? Thanks for all of this other information too.

      Thanks DL, I will have to check with my dedicated server provider - maybe I
      already have what I need installed?

      Thanks for all of this other information too. I am sure it will be even
      more appreciated by my programmer who will understand it much better than I.

      Best regards,
      Robin
