There are ways of asking for help, and some are better than others. I
have infinite patience with people who are trying to learn the concepts.
I have less patience with people who claim to have set up many servers
and yet display ignorance with basic concepts. Remember, my reputation
is tied stringly with this software - if you claim you are a competent
admin yet you error report is that the software fails "randomly"
with "stupid error messages" (both of which you did) I hope you might
realize you're going to get a somewhat sharper response.

Glad I was able to point you in the right direction.
