You're not giving us any info that actually enables us to help you. What
doesn't work? What error messages do you get? What did you already try? What
were the results of these attempts? What is in the log?

Most important is:

What doesn't work? You've only stated that it doesn't work, not what is
actually happening when you've determined that it doesn't work.
