When i run through the installation.. I get to the step 2 where it goes to the success.php page. Though it doesn't load. It give me:
"Unfortunately, an error has occurred rendering this page. Please try again later." Not sure why this is happening. the path for the success.php at where it is trying to open is correct. Here is my config.php file if it may help finding out why this is happening.

// | (2) Paths |
// +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+

// Note for Windows users: It's safe to use the forward slash '/' instead of
// the backslash '\' in paths. Make sure each path starts with a drive letter!

// This should point to the directory where your config.php file resides.
$_CONF['path'] = '/home/.papina/mastera2004/'; // should end in a slash

// You only need to change this if you moved or renamed the public_html
// directory. In that case, you should specify the complete path to the
// directory (i.e. without the $_CONF['path']) like this:
// $_CONF['path_html'] = '/path/to/your/public_html/';
$_CONF['path_html'] = $_CONF['path'] . '/geeklog.dragonarmyguild.com/';


// +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+
// | (3) Site Settings |
// +---------------------------------------------------------------------------+

// Make sure this is the correct URL to your site, i.e. to where Geeklog's
// index.php file resides (no trailing slash).
$_CONF['site_url'] = 'www.geeklog.dragonarmyguild.com';

// Some hosting services have a preconfigured admin directory. In that case,
// you need to rename Geeklog's admin directory to something like "myadmin"
// and change the following URL as well. Leave as is until you experience any
// problems accessing Geeklog's admin menu.
$_CONF['site_admin_url'] = $_CONF['site_url'] . '/admin';

// This is the return address for all email sent by Geeklog and contact info
// displayed in syndication feeds:
$_CONF['site_mail'] = 'mastera2004@dragonarmyguild.com';

// Name and slogan of your site
$_CONF['site_name'] = 'Dragon Army';
$_CONF['site_slogan'] = 'o.O';

This part is invalid...

$_CONF['path_html'] = $_CONF['path'] . '/geeklog.dragonarmyguild.com/';


What geeklog is reading this as is...

/home/.papina/mastera2004//geeklog.dragonarmyguild.com/

The only reason you should ever use $_CONF['path'] is when you have all of geeklogs files in one directory.


... Since your config path shows as /home/.papina/mastera2004/, I'll assume that /home/.papina/public_html/SUBDOMAINFOLDER/ is what your $_CONF['path_html'] = Should be...

Now make sure you replace the "SUBDOMAINFOLDER" text to the folder that /geeklog.dragonarmyguild.com/ leads too.


To make it easier I will write it up for you to try... But also remember to replace "SUBDOMAINFOLDER" with the folder name...

PHP Formatted Code

$_CONF['path'] = '/home/.papina/mastera2004/';
$_CONF['path_html'] = '/home/.papina/public_html/SUBDOMAINFOLDER/';
$_CONF['site_url'] = 'www.geeklog.dragonarmyguild.com';
$_CONF['site_admin_url'] = $_CONF['site_url'] . '/admin';
$_CONF['site_mail'] = 'mastera2004@dragonarmyguild.com';
$_CONF['site_name'] = 'Dragon Army';
$_CONF['site_slogan'] = 'o.O';
 


I think that should help...

to explain my set up.... First i did try your suggestion BlueLeprechaun, and i got the same error.

When i log into my ftp, my root directory is home/.papina/mastera2004 . My config.php and all the other files are in the root directory. all the files that are suppose to be in public_html are in the folder geeklog.dragonarmyguild.com. So i do not have a public_html folder. That is what i thought i could change the public_html folder in the config.php file to see it as geeklog.dragonarmyguild.com instead. When i run the install it runs through it all except when it is suppose to go to the success.php file. In the address bar is shows the correct path name to where the success.php file is but it doens't want to show and it gives me that error.

Any other thoughts? Do i need to have the public_html folder or can i leave it as geeklog.dragonarmyguild.com with the files that are in public_html in that folder.

Any thoughts? thanks for the input in advance

Ok, when you log into your FTP, you are at /home/.papina/mastera2004/ right?

I might be a little confused on your setup here... If you can access the root, there should be a folder that holds the main public part of the site... ex. www.example.com really is /home/user/example/public_html

So that would mean /home/user/example/ is the root for the user... Usually when you ftp, you are first sent here... Now /home/user/example/public_html is where all the files for www.example.com are stores to show.

Now what is the path to geeklog.dragonarmyguild.com when navigating your web directory from FTP?

When i log into my ftp, my root directory is home/.papina/mastera2004 . My config.php and all the other files are in the root directory. all the files that are suppose to be in public_html are in the folder geeklog.dragonarmyguild.com. So i do not have a public_html folder. That is what i thought i could change the public_html folder in the config.php file to see it as geeklog.dragonarmyguild.com instead. When i run the install it runs through it all except when it is suppose to go to the success.php file. In the address bar is shows the correct path name to where the success.php file is but it doens't want to show and it gives me that error.


The reason for it showing the correct path is because $_CONF['site_url'] = 'www.geeklog.dragonarmyguild.com'; is pointing to it...

Since that is the URL, Geeklog also needs to know the absolute PATH within the web server... So what you need to do is to go into your FTP program, from the root look for the path to the folder which you put all of your public_html files, I assume it is "/home/.papina/mastera2004/geeklog/" I'm assuming "/Mastera2004/" is the public_html folder...

So...

PHP Formatted Code
$_CONF['path'] = '/home/.papina/mastera2004/';
$_CONF['path_html'] = '/home/.papina/mastera2004/geeklog/';


Let me know if that works...

Ok i've confused myself by what i was saying.. So i pretty much cleared everything out and am going to start new.

/home/.papina/mastera2004 Is my root directory for my web space. In there. There is a folder www.dragonarmyguild.com which is used for my main domain www.dragonarmyguild.com. This is the address i will be using instead of the sub-domain i mentioned earlier.

Therefore according to the installation instructions. Everything except the contents of public_html, will be going into /home/.papina/mastera2004/ which is my root directory. The contents of public_html will be going into www.dragonarmyguild.com. I hope that makes alittle more sense than earlier.

Here are the few config.php lines.

PHP Formatted Code

$_CONF['path']            = '/home/.papina/mastera2004/';
$_CONF['path_html']         = $_CONF['path'] . '/home//papina/mastera2004/www.dragonarmyguild.com/';
$_CONF['site_url']          = 'www.dragonarmyguild.com';
$_CONF['site_admin_url']    = $_CONF['site_url'] . '/admin';
 


now should the
PHP Formatted Code
$_CONF['path_html']         = $_CONF['path']
be what it is listed above or should it be
PHP Formatted Code

$_CONF['path_html']         = $_CONF['path'] . 'www.dragonarmyguild.com/';
 


This is where i get confused.. since it states to put in the complete path to it.. yet it is calling a reference to
PHP Formatted Code
$_CONF['path']


Hopefully this explains my situation alittle more.. i really appreciate the help just wish i was better at this stuff haha

That whole folder thing being www.dragonarmyguild.com isn't really possible, so I think that is the public_html folder. What web host do you use?

Also, try this

PHP Formatted Code

$_CONF['path']            = '/home/.papina/mastera2004/';
$_CONF['path_html']         = $_CONF['path'] . 'public_html/';
$_CONF['site_url']          = 'www.dragonarmyguild.com';
$_CONF['site_admin_url']    = $_CONF['site_url'] . '/admin';



Now this is invalid
PHP Formatted Code
$_CONF['path_html']         = $_CONF['path'] . 'www.dragonarmyguild.com/';
you cannot use a web url for the folder. I think this has something to do with your webhost, but the path function is preset to /home/.papina/mastera2004/ then you are using that to start off at that last point /mastera2004/ and continue making your way to the server public_html folder.

I don't know how dream host works... Or how the folders are set up. If I could get a visual, it would work much better.

So sorry about that...

Okay, I would create a directory called geeklog just so you don't clutter your root directory. It will also make upgrades easier.

Edit '/home/.papina/mastera2004/geeklog/config.php'

setup the database options

$_CONF['path'] = '/home/.papina/mastera2004/geeklog';
$_CONF['path_html'] = '/home/.papina/mastera2004/www.dragonarmyguild.com';

$_CONF['site_url'] = 'http://www.dragonarmyguild.com';

Leave all other path and site config options with their defaults.

Now move the content of geeklog/public_html directly into '/home/.papina/mastera2004/www.dragonarmyguild.com'

Edit '/home/.papina/mastera2004/www.dragonarmyguild.com/lib-common.php'
search for /path/to/geeklog and replace that line with

require_once '/home/.papina/mastera2004/geeklog/config.php';

That should get you to the success.php.

I think I see the problem... The files in the public_html folder are supposed to go into the www.dragonarmyguild.com folder! Not into another folder named public_html...

I did say "files" but yeah, I always forget to emphasize that.

mastera: Glad to help.
