So this is how I have my paths now...


I hope not. Since this contains the same mistake as above again (changing the name of a $_CONF variable).

Poking around on what I assume your website is, you should have
PHP Formatted Code
$_CONF['site_url'] = 'http://www.socalstandup.com/signup';

That URL seems to work, only it's giving a blank page now, probably due to the above mistake. Fix that, then try again.

bye, Dirk



Wow, I'm seriously feeling STUUUUPID...

Still not coming up. I put the paths in the quote areas not next to CONF and I still must be putting them wrong. I'm sorry I'm really not trying to be lame... I'll paste what I have now... I'm trying to follow instructions but I guess I'm just not grasping it.

// This should point to the directory where your config.php file resides.
$_CONF['path'] = '/var/www/vhosts/socalstandup.com/httpdocs/oasis/'; // 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'] . '/var/www/vhosts/socalstandup.com/httpdocs/signup/';

Thanks again... Sorry about taking up so much space and time, I really appreciate your help.

By the way, this is how I have my site settings area... Think it's right but that could be off too...
$_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'] = 'info@socalstandup.com';

Don't worry, you're just a bit confused now with all the back and forth. I've seen this before. About time we get the next release with the new install script finished ...

Since you quoted them, you may as well read those comments again carefully ...

Try this:
PHP Formatted Code
$_CONF['path_html']         = '/var/www/vhosts/socalstandup.com/httpdocs/signup/';


If you're still getting a blank page then, look here: Blank page

I think that's the line that has totally been confusing me...

This is what it looks like before you edit anything...

$_CONF['path_html'] = $_CONF['path'] . 'public_html/';

it's not formatted like the 'path' line is before you edit anything...

$_CONF['path'] = '/path/to/geeklog/'; // should end in a slash

So, I'm not sure what i can and can't take out there or what to replace... So whould I totally take out the = $_CONF['path'] . 'public_html/'; and replace it with = '/var/www/vhosts/socalstandup.com/httpdocs/signup/ ?

Thanksssssss

A little bit of PHP knowledge would probably help understand this line:
PHP Formatted Code
$_CONF['path_html'] = $_CONF['path'] . 'public_html/';

So what this does is take the value of $_CONF['path'] (that you gave it a few lines above), appends "public_html/" and uses the result as the value for $_CONF['path_html'].

So if $_CONF['path'] = "blah", the result would be "blah/public_html/".

We've put it in there like that to save you from having to type the full path again. Of course, if your setup is different from the standard case (as in yours, where you put the stuff outside of public_html into a different directory), that concatenation would result in the wrong path. So you have to drop the $_CONF['path'] and assign the full path directly instead.

Which is what the comment above that line was trying to say.

HTH

Makes sense... I altered it to how I think you meant and still the same issue. By the way, I don't see a blank screen. I see an HTTP 500 - website cannot display the page.

This is what I have now.

$_CONF['path'] = '/var/www/vhosts/socalstandup.com/httpdocs/oasis/'; // 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'] = '/var/www/vhosts/socalstandup.com/httpdocs/signup/';

Thanks for your patience... is that what you meant?

Looks okay to me now.

Yeah, your server sends a 500 with the blank page. Your browser must be displaying its own error page for that (Firefox doesn't).

Try the "Blank page" link from above anyway. Or if you have access to the server's error_log, check that first.

I do have access to my error log... Of course I'm not really sure what we're looking for in it.

Here are some lines from it... and it continues to repeat over and over again...

That's not something that's coming from Geeklog - at least not from the core code. Did you install any add-ons already?

Now that's a common case. Your editor messed up a part of the Code in lib-common.php. Use a fresh copy of that file and a different text editor, then make the one required change (the path to your config.php) again.

Dirk!

Thanks so much for your patience and help with this. Not sure what I did wrong with that lib file the first time. I FTP'd it the first time and maybe I had the path incorrect, then did just edit/upload it just now with front page and that does not work, so I did it with notepad and cuteftp and the site worked!

I'll check the instructions and see what to do next... I do have a couple of questions one of which might sound pretty lame after all this install trouble... Ha...

I literally installed this because I need that event planner on your partners site mentioned above. What do most people install Geeklog for? I have not read much about it and only got it for the plugin I need. I see it's the ultimate weblog system at the top, so is it primarily used to make blogs?

Also, What is the best way to get hold of your partner? He hasn't answered that paypal email I sent him. I'd love to get that plugin ASAP and it seems that his site is not setup on an instant pay/download system. Is there a quicker email to reach hiim at?

Thanks again for all your help, and sorry I used more space on your forum than anyone up until now. hahaha...

Glad to hear you got it working.

I'm actually not too happy with the site slogan but haven't been able to come up with a better one :wink:

Yeah, you can use Geeklog as a blog, but I'd like to think of it more as a small CMS. The company I work for, for example, are using it for their regular homepage. When you need to post some sort of "news", be it press releases or what you had for lunch, you can do it with Geeklog. And you can easily expand from there with the available plugins.

Since I've just updated the introduction in the wiki docs somewhat, let me point you there.

As for Blaine, I pointed him to this thread. He'll probably get in contact in one form or another soonish.

bye, Dirk

Okay, after browsing through the program, I understand more about what the program is for.

Totally awesome by the way...

I did run into 1 problem... Trying to change my password. First it said the permissions were not writable at a certain driectory, so i went in and changed it from 775 to 777. Now when I try to change the password it just takes me back to the change password screen and says you must enter original password. Which I have done each time I've tried it. It lets me change other things like my user name etc, but not a new password.

Also, this system is so big and powerful and customizable, I almost feel like I should have it on my main page, not just at /signup... would that be a total pain for me to change at this poiint or later down the line?

Thanks...

How about "The land where geeks log, and logs geek..." Hahahah....



Were you ever able to get hold of Blaine? I'm really excited to get that event plugin from Blaine. I wish I could pay and get it instantly. Your free help is faster than their help and their products cost money.... Ha...

I emailed his paypal email address, and I filled out that form on their site 2 days ago. I would just pay for the plugin, but I figure if they don't check their paypal email very often I would rather not be annoyed by paying for something and having to wait a week. Any advice? I'm sure he's just busy with important projects, but that plugin is the sole reason I got this going in the first place. Thanks!

Again, I appreciate all the help and time you've spent on me... Still trying to change my password too. I was thinking maybe I should change EVERY 775 to 777 on that list of folders/files. I only did the 2 that the system complained about. Figured I'd wait to hear from you first.

Thanks!

Pretty easy to get ahold of me but when your anonymous, it makes it a bit hard to reply to you. Maybe you want to register on this site or my site :shock:

Sorry Blaine... I wasn't being anonymous intentionally, never even seen a forum that allows that til now so figured what the hell Smile

I do have a login on your site. I made it a couple days ago. I just purchased the plugin and it did not seem to be an instant download like the other person posted. What happens now?

Thanks!
Brian
