It is fairly easy to do so I just had a couple of refresher goes with some domains. It looks as if there may be a problem with being unable to write the required dat file by the Count.cgi program. You can show a date or time but not set up a count.
I have sent in a support query to see if they can chek this since the .dat file is written in the depths of the system files. It may not be looked at if other things are going on but you may want to hold on until they have checked it out.
Your line is okay apart from the #### which you might want to seed with 0000 or even 9,999,999.
I might be wrong. I usually am!!
