No, that was it. I didn't mention it in myoriginal message because I 
didn't think it was relevant but I'm blind. Turns out it was relevant. 
Soon as I got someone who could see in to help me, she saw that I had to 
press a tab and then I remembered. After that, it probably took me about 
15 minutes to rescue the server.

Boy, did I feel stupid. Nobody's fault except my own. Although, like I 
said to someone else this weekend: Being blind isn't as bad as most 
people thing. However, I would not recommend it.
