  You don't.  You fix the configuration files to use the new recommended
practice, which started being recommended in version 1.1.4.

  Fix those entries.

  Also, change ALL "Password = ..." or "Password == .." to
"Cleartext-Password := ..."  See the FAQ for an example.

  Could you please try reading the debug output, and following it's

  READ the debug output?

  Honestly.  We don't just say "run in debugging mode" because we want
the logs to be posted to the list.  YOU need to read the output.  It's
not hard.  Things like "WARNING" and "read the man page" should indicate
to most people that maybe reading the "man" page would be a good idea.
