"Why are you trying to change the database host in the first place?"

The reasons is because I was in the process of trying to rewrite and hopefully improve some of the documentation associated with wifidog.  We are a startup group. I spent several years in technical writing, and one of the first things that I learned was to only write about things that you undersand otherwise you confuse yourself and others.  

I have spend more than enough hours writing and rewriting some of the documents that I thought were worthwhile spending time on.  Obviously the documents are self explanatory so the trouble understanding must be at my end.  I will pass the message to our group.

I apologize for posting such a stupid question on the board.  I still do not understand, but I guess that only proves the response.

Is thee a way that I can withdraw the Trouble Tickets that I posted?
