I am stumped. Here is my dir layout. /home/u3/mattlter/ /geeklog All geeklog files here /html All public geeklog here aka public_html Here is my config and lib-common config $_CONF[\'path\'] = \'/home/u3/mattlter/geeklog/\'; $_CONF[\'path_html\'] = $_CONF[\'path\'] . \'home/u3/mattlter/html/\'; lib-common require_once( \'/home/u3/mattlter/geeklog/config.php\' ); I have gone over all the perms in logs html/backend html/images/articles html/userphotos and made them all 777 Here is the issue, When I run the check.php it looks like the paths are being shown with symbolics links. An example is, Could not open the RDF file /home/u3/mattlter/geeklog/home/u3/mattlter/html/backend/geeklog.rdf for writing. See how the script seem to be going to geeklog then back up to home. I assume its my paths but for the last 2 days I have read every post I could find about paths with no luck. I also have tried all diffrent variations of my path, only the above path statements get check.php to run. Any help would be great, Geeklog looks cool, I would love to get it running. Thanks Matt Alter mattalter@yahoo.com

Change this: $_CONF[\'path_html\'] = $_CONF[\'path\'] . \'home/u3/mattlter/html/\'; to this: $_CONF[\'path_html\'] = \'home/u3/mattlter/html/\'; Regards, Patrick

sorry, put a \"/\" in front of home: $_CONF[\'path_html\'] = \'/home/u3/mattlter/html/\'; single line off course. stupid forum breaks up the line.

Or simply $_CONF[\'path_html\'] = $_CONF[\'path\'] . \'html/\'; bye, Dirk

Could you post the upper section, the part that you need to change, of your config.php. Also, what path did you put in your lib-common.php? Sam

Ther error messages is pointing to /home/com instead of /home/u3. This might be the problem.

It seems that at my host the html dir is also an aliais for com. I guess I could create a sub dir called html to see if that helps.

In the install directory there is file called check.php, run it and see what it brings back for errors.

Thats not what the messages are saying. It might be an alias for u3 but not html.

I already removed my install dir, but used the check.php to resolve my path issue, all tests were sucsessful. I assume this is not a rights issue but a path issue, and with my host not how geeklog is setup.

On the surface the geeklog setup looks ok. You might want to talk with the host.

Ok with all your help and more picking around, I found what it was. Of course it was a path issue. Here is my config $_CONF[\'path\'] = \'/home/com/aconsensus/geeklog/\'; $_CONF[\'path_html\'] = \'/home/com/aconsensus/html/\'; I had to change my path, orginaly it was /home/u3/mattlter/html, this is what my host told me what is was, but after seeing the error after my last install in the index.php page, this lead me to this. Thanks for all your help, I hope this thread may help someone else!
