confused
I have had a websight for years. But I want to start leting others help me with it without leting them into my FTP. And this looks like the best way to do it. But I don\'t know anything about PHP and mySQL. I have a ftp with Powweb. I know what my database name is. And I set me up a username and pass to use it. But thats as far as I got. I don\'t want to take down my sight and get to a point were it will take me days to get it back up. I don\'t know were the database is or how to use it. I don\'t know what the username and pass is for. So if there is someone out there that knows what and how Powweb is set up. PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!! Mr. Green

Well, sounds like you have everything you need. Download Geeklog (if you haven\'t already), read the installation instructions, see if you can figure out what to change in config.php - no need to upload anything until that point. If you\'re stuck, ask here ... bye, Dirk

I guess you have a traditional web site with the main page under the name of index.html (index.htm). In this case installing geeklog will not likely to effect your current site because its main page is index.php and will not show up as long as you have your index.html up there.

After installation you have to view your geeklog site by typing on the address bar, http://www.yourdomain/index.php. After your Geeklog site is compeleted, you can just delete your old index.html (or rename it to something else). Then the geeklog\'s index.php will become the main page.

So you don\'t have to remove your current pages while you are building Geeklog. Thats how I did when I change my static sites to Geeklog.

Thanks Samstone. That was what I was worried about. I just seen Index and did not think about the ending tag.

If I change it to 755 I get a new error. But one that looks like it comes from geeklog. Will 755 work with it?

Haven\'t seen that one before, but it actually tells you what the problem is. Try setting the permissions to 644. PHP files don\'t need to be executable and it seems your server is set up such they should not be group writable. If 644 works for the install script, you will probably have to set all .php files to 644 to get things working. bye, Dirk

Where did you put the geeklog directory? Make sure you didn\'t put in in the cgi-bin.

Hummm, I remember years ago, my web host set the security so high that I couldn't execute any script that retreived server information.

Check out with your webhost, and make sure they allow php script, etc.

Otherwise dumb them and use my webhost that's perfectly compatible with geeklog. Just kidding, that's your decision.

Also try 775.

Why don\'t you reupload the files from the tarball since they are already set to the proper permission. Then you can change just the few listed in the instructions to 775/777. I hate to tell you this, but Powweb is not a great host to run mysql powered sites on. They overload their servers big time. Yours has 1,408 domains assigned to it. Powweb also puts a cap on how many queries can be made to a database per hour. When you hit the number, they deactivate your site until the hour is up. Some have rotated their users to get around this but many others have left because it\'s tough running anything there other than a very small personal site.
