        Are you able to provide any further help on the matter? or is this something i should be contacting my host about? In all honesty I can see the problem but i am unsure as to how to proceed with the solution.

          I have found the problem, had to change localhost on my config.php

            I had the same issue and have yet to resolve it what did you change your localhost to?
