I have put everything in these are the file locations

/htdocs/geeklog/private_html/ (system files)
/htdocs/geeklog/public_html/ (public files)

when the installer asks me for the location to the db-config.php this is what I put in


then it says

Installation Error
The path "/htdocs/geeklog/private_html/db-config.php" does not appear to be correct. Please go back and try again.

When I move the private files to the /htdocs/geeklog it works fine but if I use .htaccess it willl block public_html too, what do I do?

Hmm. Check the permissions on your private_html directory (and the db-config.php). They need to be accessible for the webserver.

bye, Dirk


I have checked the permissions they are 755 but when I put the private_html files one derectory lower it works fine as I mentioned (the installer script finds it). But if I use .htaccess it will block out public_html too.

I am really good at this kinda stuff but I have no idea what is wrong.

EDIT Agian: Nvm my idea did not work (if you saw it posted forget it) did not work so back to square one. I have a private_html folder and a public_html folder and I am currently blocking all the files and subdirectories of private_html with a .htaccess file.


I have fixed my problem and what I did was is I put the system files in the directory that the public_html was in. I setup everything and then I looked at the path to the logs and so on and here it is


so it turns out that network solutions has this weird path for the root so if you are having a problems similar to mine that is a way you can find the path to the root of your site or if you can find a much easier way please let me know.
I put the stars there to block out some of the numbers because that is some of my account information with network solutions.
