Hi!
The process would be really faster if we could look at your site settings and see what's wrong.

Would you be able to send to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it the admin access to your site, mysql access and this forum thread's link?
We'll see what's wrong there.

Kind regards!
