New install and very confused


Can anyone please help me with the install? I went to the install file in the download and I am still confused. Do I ftp all the folders: docs, etc, language, logs, plugins, public_html, sql? or do I just upload one of them? Is there better step by step instructions on the install then the one in the docs folder? Thank you in advance for any help.


Hi there I will try to help I just installed mine and can share what i have learned. but remember this is partly the blind leading the blind. so first off what version did you attempt to install? 1.3.4 or the latest release? and how far did the first install get? ----- In Search of Inteligent Light Art, Music, and events in Georgian Bay Ontario

I'll only address how to get the files over to your server. The exact installation procedure will depend on the version of Geeklog you are using. Assume on your server your webtree is at /home/johndoe/public_html. You need to decide a couple of things here: a) do you want Geeklog in your base web tree directory or in a subdirectory (e.g. /home/johndoe/public_html/geeklog). Let's assume you want it in your primary web directory. First thing you want to do is create a folder outside of your webtree to hold the Geeklog system files...something like /home/johndoe/geeklogconfig/ will do. On your local machine uncompress the tarball. this will create a geeklog-<version>/ directory. Change into that directory. From here all you need to do is FTP the contents of public_html to /home/johndoe/public_html. Then you want to delete your local public_html directory. Then you want to FTP the contents of geeklog-<version>/ on your local machine to /home/johndoe/geeklogconfig That's it. Now depending on the version of Geeklog you may have to edit some files locally and re-FTP them over. ----- The reason people blame things on previous generations is that there's only one other choice.
