confused
I installed Geeklog on my Pair Networks Account by following their instructions precisely and everything appeared to install smoothly. After remapping the domain the last set of instruction is as follows:

At the end of the installation process, Geeklog provides you with a URL where you may begin using your installation of Geeklog. After your domain has been remapped, you may visit this URL to begin using Geeklog.

The first thing you should do is change the default passwords Geeklog uses for the Admin and Moderator accounts!

Learning More About Geeklog

You can learn more about Geeklog and hook up with fellow Webmasters at the official Geeklog site.


I don't think that I was sent a domain for Geeklog and so now I am confused about what to do next. I have contacted Pair support several times and as of yet I have not been able to reseolve my small problem.

Does anyone have any suggestions as how to go about configuring Geeklog knowing what I have posted. By the way, I come from MS Frontpage so you may need to hold my hand more than you normally would Wink

Thanks,
Chriss_t

I have to admit I'm not too sure what pair.com means by those instructions (here, btw) either ...

So, what happens when you simply enter your domain name (in your browser's address bar)?

I am getting closer I think. Tech support replied and said that the account was set up. When I go to the domain I see the Geeklog page, so I think things are working out.

My next step is to set up all necessary directories, customize the interface and finally learn how to use Geeklog.

Thanks for your help, it looks like it was a matter of time (or maybe tech support).

I have created the directory

'.../public_html/images/articles'

to add content by clicking on the GET PUBLISHED link within the Geeklog default style on the homepage and I get the error

'Specified upload directory exists but is not writable'

Do you have any suggestions to fix the problem?

Um, make it writable? See the manual installation instructions (#3).
