new installation…

Hello again, I've made a fresh install of the updated GL. It's on a remote server, the IP gives me access to only one directory called web, so I had to install the non-public files in this directory too, I've made a seperate directory inside web for this.
How (un)safe could this be?

Installation went very well, but on top of each page I get the following:

Warning: fopen("/home/.sites/106/site15/web/geeklog/logs/error.log","a") - Permission denied in /home/.sites/106/site15/web/lib-common.php on line 1440

I did a chmod 775 on lib-common.php, but that didn't change it.
Exept for this everything seems to work fine.




It's late and I'm not an expert, but if I'm reading it right, I think it's not trying to open lib-common, it's trying to open the error.log. I received the same message (if I recall correctly) when I first installed GeekLog. Did you chmod the error.log (per the installation instrux) to 775? If not, try that. If you did, try chmod to 777 and see if that fixes it. (I don't remember if I had to also grant those permissions for the log directory itself; I know it's in the documentation...)

While not as secure as having the geeklog core files outside your web directory, you can prevent people from viewing them by creating a .htaccess file in the geeklog directory and have it include the following two lines: Order deny, allow Deny from all The above comment is correct as far as the error code you are getting. You must give write access to the error.log file all users so the web server can write to it.
