ok cool, that's good to know.

I didn't take it as questions my skilz - mad skilz - hah.  I didn't  
delete the file either.  simply renaming it nets the same results  
which is what I generally do.

I'm dense sometimes. What can I say. yeah, that's what it says.  But  
again the file listed in that text box doesn't exist either. The only  
one that exists is the one directed to in the last line of  
localconf.php (which I've no idea how that got in there).

It's checked and always has been.  I get no file in typo3conf/.   
Permissions are correct on that directory (they have to be as  
extensions are allowed to be installed).  Will uninstalling/installing  
possibly work?

Well.... it might not be for me but it's what our clients ask for.  
D'oh! I inherited RealURL for better or worse. My company has been  
developing Typo3 sites for five or more years but I've only been with  
them for a year and a half.

A list of sites I've helped  manage/develop (I've done probably 75% of  
the work).


These done the "hard" way with no domain record (used conditionals to  
test the requested domain).





I'm currently working on launching a site hopefully within a week and  
we just got another signed contract for another site.

We heart Typo3  ;-)

Thanks again!
