My current hosting company that I've switched to has no previous installs of geeklog, and are unable to assist me with installation.

In their root directory, I am unable to create folders. All files must go in httpdocs. Therefore, I am unsure where to install geeklog, as I am unable to install it in the root directory.

I was able to succesfully install DB, but index.php is blank and url is as follows: www.juicedome.com/public_html/index.php

Any help would be great!

The hosting company is globat.com

There could be some confussion in what you are allowed and what not.

If you ask your provider can I write in your root directory, I can understand them.

You should however be able to write in your own "root" directory.

/    << this is the root directory
/home/virtuals_sites/yoursitename/   << this is your root directory

Also have a look at this topic here

If you don´t have access to your root directory I suggest you switch provider.

Some hosting services will not let you put files outside of the web root, i.e. all the files you'll upload will be accessible from a URL.

You can still install Geeklog in such an enviroment. I just wrote up an FAQ entry for it, since this comes up from time to time: Installing Geeklog entirely within the web root
