Re: Experimenting with importing the sql file into the datab

Hello --

Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately, I cannot devote any more time to this project due to other more pressing issues. As such, I am going to have end my efforts here, and remove nconf from our server.

I hope to be able to revisit this at a later date.
