Some short tips



I have been having a very hard time installing geeklog and did not know where the problem was. At first was not sure if it was a programming error or a users error. It actually happened to be a users error and a simple error. My paths all seemed correct or so I thought. From my experience if you run linux, my distro you need to be sure your doing things correctly.

1. Make sure to update lib-common.php if you happen to move your geeklog install folder again. If you move and forget to do so again despite even if your mysql geeklog database is fine. You will get an error that something is wrong with your database. In a white screen 1 line webpage.

2. Make sure that if your using apache you have the paths correct. In my case I had to at first move public_html contents on the outside. Which was a potential danger even though secured the work around.


DocumentRoot /var/www/yoursite/yourfolderifyouhave/public_html

<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
<Directory /var/www/common/yoursite>

This is more correct otherwise you will need to have two instances of contents inside public_html and outside. Not secure at all this is really simple but was overlooked. Perhaps a word of mention inside the documentation?
