Is there an easier way to do it

I do no0t have domin yet so i have to type to get to thos geeklog mypreviousdomain.com/cute/public_html

Is it possible to disable this url path so noone can get to this geeklog, because i will buy a new domain and i will not have to use the path again

You have to edit the paths in lib-common.php and config.php. Very simple actually.

You could use a .htaccess file, but as long as you set the new domain name in config.php, you shouldn't have to worry about it. It is not really a security issue - mainly a cosmetic one.

sorry for complex q

Which complex question? Cool

IIRC you have to change one path in lib-common.php and two paths in config.php (depending on your setup).

Hi,
I am trying to move GeekLog from site root to to another folder named /home. I followed your instruction but the only file I see is db-configure.php, lib-common.php.
Are these two files the same as the files I mentioned above? "You have to edit the paths in lib-common.php and config.php. Very simple actually"

In the file lib-common.php, do I change anything here? and How?

require_once 'siteconfig.php';

/**
* Configuration class
*/
require_once $_CONF['path_system'] . 'classes/config.class.php';

$config =& config::get_instance();
$config->set_configfile($_CONF['path'] . 'db-config.php'Wink;
$config->load_baseconfig();
$config->initConfig();


In file siteconfig.php I added the new path /home and copied all the contents of my Installed Geeklog site into it ( e.g - Full Path to my Site/Mysite.com/home/). NO Changes were made to the Database or password.
when I now search for the site www.mysite.com/home,
I get the message:
Warning: fopen() [function.fopen]: Unable to access Full Path to mysite/mysite.com//logs/error.log in/usr/local/ Full Path to mysite/mysite.com//home/lib-common.php on line 1950

Unfortunately, an error has occurred rendering this page. Please try again later.


What do I do now?
Thanks.

You do not need to edit files but you will need to install the rescue tool to change your paths.

Actually, you should be able to do a Migration with the install script, i.e. use the Migration option in the install script and choose the option to migrate your current database.

Having backups can't hurt, of course Wink

bye, Dirk

Thanks to JHK, Ben and as usual Dirk.
The rescue/migration tool works. I believe this is a must Have tool. I will try out Dirk's option in another experiment.

Yee Haw, Geeklog All Day Baby...
