problem solved....browser issue I think....now I have another question. When I pointed my browser to the website PS never did go into an install process and I never did have to enter the auth key. I figured that was OK because I had modified the connections module and imported the MySQL data base that had been built up on my localhost. Does that seem logical? Hope so.
Also, I tried sending a test contact email but I never did receive that email. What could be the problem?
