It sounds like a problem in your config.php file. The public_html folder is the folder that originally contains everything that the public is meant to see. If you moved the files out of this folder to another, you have to make sure you changed the path in your cofig.php. The error seems to be literally saying it can't find the Yahoo theme which seems to be set as the default theme in config.php

Perhaps you didn't change the contents in public_html, but you said here you don't have a directory by that name. Yet, when you previously posted your paths, you put public_html in at least one of them: $_CONF['path_html'] = $_CONF['path'] . 'home/punkboy/geeklog/public_html/';

Go take take a couple hours off to calm down. Then, come back and report all your configuration paths again. Also post where exactly you put the files from the public_html and and the non-public ones on your server.

This isn't hard. It just seems that way because your stressed out. The problem is just getting the paths right.

ok... On my server I have a public_html folder where i put all my public_html files in that came when i downloaded geeklog. I also have a geeklog folder where I put everything else...this geeklog folder is not in my public_html folder. Here are the paths in my config.php file: Server settings: $_CONF['path'] = '/home/punkboy/geeklog/'; // C:/inetpub/wwwroot/geeklog/ $_CONF['path'] = '/home/punkboy/geeklog/'; // C:/inetpub/wwwroot/geeklog/ // You only need to change this if you moved or renamed the public_html // directory. In that case, you should specify the complete path to the // directory like this (i.e. without the $_CONF['path']): // $_CONF['path_html'] = '/home/punkboy/public_html/'; $_CONF['path_html'] = $_CONF['path'] . '/home/punkboy/public_html/'; // you shouldn't need to edit the following $_CONF['path_system'] = $_CONF['path'] . 'system/'; $_CONF['path_log'] = $_CONF['path'] . 'logs/'; $_CONF['path_language'] = $_CONF['path'] . 'language/'; $_CONF['rdf_file'] = $_CONF['path_html'] . 'backend/geeklog.rdf'; $_CONF['backup_path'] = $_CONF['path'] . 'backups/'; Site settings: / make sure this is the correct URL to your site (no trailing slash) $_CONF['site_url'] = 'http://fighttheoctopus.dr2.net'; $_CONF['site_name'] = 'Fight The Octopus'; $_CONF['site_slogan'] = 'Resisting Corporate Media'; $_CONF['site_mail'] = 'punkboy_jerm@canada.com'; $_CONF['theme'] = 'Yahoo'; // default theme // Some hosting services have a preconfigured admin directory. In that case, // you need to rename Geeklog's admin directory to something like "myadmin" // and change the following URL as well. Leave as is until you experience any // problems accessing Geeklog's admin menu. $_CONF['site_admin_url'] = $_CONF['site_url'] . '/home/punkboy/public_html/admin'; // you shouldn't need to edit the following $_CONF['layout_url'] = $_CONF['site_url'] . '/layout/' . $_CONF['theme']; $_CONF['path_themes'] = $_CONF['path_html'] . 'layout/'; $_CONF['path_layout'] = $_CONF['path_themes'] . $_CONF['theme'] .'/'; I hope this helps thanks---1234 EAT THE RICH AND FEED THE POOR 5678 ORGINISE AND SMASH THIS STATE - suck la marde

Hey, wait a minute. You didn't take a chill pill. lol Okay, try these changes here. You only need to define $_CONF['path'] once not twice. Delete one of the two. $_CONF['path'] = '/home/punkboy/geeklog/'; // C:/inetpub/wwwroot/geeklog/ $_CONF['path'] = '/home/punkboy/geeklog/'; // C:/inetpub/wwwroot/geeklog/ This path here is wrong: $_CONF['path_html'] = $_CONF['path'] . '/home/punkboy/public_html/'; As written, it equates to this: '/home/punkboy/geeklog/home/punkboy/public_html/' Based on where you said you placed the files, it should be this instead: $_CONF['path_html'] = '/home/punkboy/public_html/'; This path here is wrong too: $_CONF['site_admin_url'] = $_CONF['site_url'] . '/home/punkboy/public_html/admin'; As written, it equates to this: 'http://fighttheoctopus.dr2.net/home/punkboy/public_html/admin' It should be this instead: $_CONF['site_admin_url'] = $_CONF['site_url'] . '/admin'; Fix these and see if your GL works now.

Let's try again. You have these two directories on your server: all public_html files were placed under: /home/punkboy/public_html/ all the other files were placed under: /home/punkboy/geeklog/ Is this right? After making those changes, please post the exact error message you're getting now.

I don't think you fixed this path here or the file didn't get overwritten with the correct change: $_CONF['path_html'] = $_CONF['path'] . '/home/punkboy/public_html/'; It needs to be this: $_CONF['path_html'] = '/home/punkboy/public_html/';

Go to http://www.macosxhints.com and do a site search for - install geeklog - this will give you a very good idea of what you need to do. Just substitute the names of the directories for the names on your server. I would also suggest starting over from scratch.

You need to change permissions on the logs directory, error.log file, and access.log file to allow write access. After you install GL, there's a script named check.php in the same directory (it's probably located at http://fighttheoctopus.dr2.net/admin/install/check.php). Run that script and it will check certain files and directories to make sure you have the proper permissions set. If it says a directory or file is missing then just create an empty one and set the permissions. The script says the directories/files it checks must be set at 775, but I had to set them to 777. After you get a thumbs up from the script, make sure you remove the install directory from your server.
