The hosting provider that I am using does not have a non-web file space. I've looked over the install directions a couple of times, but I don't see any info on installing geeklog in this situation. I have successfully installed it on my laptop to test it. Are there instructions on using geeklog w/ a provider that uses the home directory as the public_html directory?


I dont see any problem there.

simply make a subdirectory of your /public_html/ and call it /backend and one /frontend

put the folder with config.php into backend and the piublic_html into frontend

now configure config.php and lib_common accordingly.
then put an auto-forward-html or php (header statement) into the root as index.php that points to /frontend.

like this you dont have to mess your public-html up with too many subdirectories.

in the ned you cna put everything wherever you like as long as the config-php and libcommon are properly set up, and as long as the folders dont overlap in a way tha files get overwritten.

If they let you password-protect directories, then do the following:
  • copy all the files and directories from Geeklog's public_html into your webspace
  • create another directory there (name it "geeklog" or whatever you want - maybe something not so obvious) and copy all the remaining files and directories into that new directory
  • password-protect that directory
  • set $_CONF['path'] to point to that directory and $_CONF['path_html'] to point to your webspace
  • proceed with the installation as per the instructions
