Again, I need an example that I can read. Not a page full of information overload that may or may not address the issue at hand. 
I do not wish to have to read an encyclopedia to discover out a simple answer.

for example do I have to create an ENTIRELY NEW SECTION in the config file  (which will probably create a problem in configs if it's referencing the same section name twice)

There is a LOT of stuff on that page... care to either shave it down to ONE specific line (or function enabling) or shrug me off to someone who can answer the question without making it even more confusing?

I should tell you that I've only been successful with this program as it comes "out of the box" - any other port won't work for the single working instance (at least it hasn't yet).

Let's drop the "geek speak" and geek attitudes here and try to speak normal english as I don't speak any other form of english.
