confused
hello all-

i'm in love with the capabilities and demo's i've seen of geeklog, but have am completely stuck on getting it installed. i admit, i've got very little experience with php and even less with mysql, but i *thought* i was doing okay.. apparently i'm not.

if i actually posted a step-by-step process of what i've done with screenshots, would someone be willing to point out where i screwed up? i'm currently just stuck, and not getting any closer to getting this beast installed. if someone was willing to check out some pretty pictures with steps i've taken, i'd be happy to upload them to the web or email them.

thanks in advance!

Absolutely NOT!!! I am running a geeklog site with 1 and 1 on their $3 a month package. It works fine. What you need to do is install the public_html folder in the webroot (topmost folder you have available. Put everything else in a [password-protected] folder named something other than geeklog (to avoid security risks). Then, all you need to do is set paths to public_html and the folder containing everything else in config.php, and you should be set.


So, like an exmaple (that might be similar to your's) to the everthing else folder (containing config.php) sohould be something like:

/homepages/00/d1234567/htdocs/otherfolder/ (where other folder is the one containing config.php)


and to public_thml should be set to:

/homepages/00/d1234567/htdocs/ (becasue htdocs is the same thing as public_html except called by another name)


hope that helps

Nope. Installing Geeklog entirely within the web root
