  Because you're running an old version.

  With all due respect, nothing prevents you from downloading 2.1.10,
and *not* installing it.  Read the examples && config.  Many will still
work in 2.0.4.

  Because you didn't follow the documentation.

  For what you're doing, there are *very* few differences between 2.0.4
and 2.1.10.  The examples, documentation, and "howtos" still largely apply.

  There's nothing preventing you from *installing* a test version of
2.1.10.  Then, configuring that to work.  And once it works, figuring
out how to apply that configuration to 2.0.4.

  Installing a test version of 2.1.10 would have been *less* work than
arguing on this list.  Go do it now, and stop complaining about the
