howdy,

i am trying to install geeklog 1.4 for the first time.
installation is not system wide, it's a site on hosting server (mine, so i have root).

when i run check.php it produces an error:
---start---
Warning: fopen(/home/sites/site6/users/wmsite6/web/logs/error.log) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/sites/site6/web/lib-common.php on line 1702
An SQL error has occurred. Please see error.log for details.
---end---

wmsite6 is site admin. permissions in /home/sites/site6/users/wmsite6/web/ are:
---start---

---end---

all my sites are owned by $admin:$site, where $admin=site administrator, and $site=corresponding site. those are default working permissions and they work OK for other sites.

after checking lib-common.php i suspected i need to set different permissions on non-public dirs/files of geeklog, don't i?

i need your help in setting correct permissions.

hope the question is clear.


thank you.

Read the FAQ http://www.geeklog.net/docs/install.html#permission-denied

You probably didn't set the permissions on the actual .log files.

bye, Dirk
