confused
Hi guys,

I've downloaded the installpackage from geeklog.net unrarred it and then uploaded on to my hostingv via ftp

but when i want to go to my install page in the public_html directory I always get this Error

Text Formatted Code
Unfortunately, an error has occurred rendering this page. Please try again later.


so I can't install geeklog 'manually' on my hosting
i can install it via fantastico, but then i has to be in a directory that doesn't exist (and thats for my no solution!)

can anyone help me out?

thanks in advance!

Hi Keepertje,
You need to provide a little more info. What version package did you install? Did you create the MySql DB required, and test the user? What URL were you going to when you get the error?
Luhme summa dat GL.

Oké i'm sorry...

I've downloaded the 1.5.1 package from here (geeklog.net)
I didn't create a MySql Db and user
is that necessary before?
how should i name the database?

and the url

mvcbrugsezot.be

thanks m8 for helping me out!

You do have to create an empty database before installation, you can name it whatever you want, the installer will ask you it's name, username and password.

In Dutch: Je moet eerst een lege database aanmaken, naam/gebruikersnaam/wachtwoord kun je daarbij zelf bepalen, het systeem vraagt daar vanzelf naar tijdens installatie. Denk er aan dat je het systeem voor een groot deel 'boven' de publieke html map moet zetten. Lees eerst de documentatie, en als je vooraf aandacht schenkt aan de correct CHMOD instellingen scheelt dat ergernis tijdens de installatie. Succes daar in het schone Brugge!

Have a look over here: http://mvcbrugsezot.be/admin/install/index.php. You have to point to the server path, not http:, so something like /home/users/username/domain/...

yeah i saw
i re-installed it but now i got stuck on that point

i've made a directory: path/to and added the file: db-config.php

but he doesn't find it

at first it was in the main directory so i've put: /db-config.php
=> he doesn't find it

then i've made the directory: path/to/db-config.php

but he doesn't find it....


what can i do?

No, you don't have to make that path, you have to tell Geeklog in which path your files are. In which path are your Geeklog files now? And read the docs please: http://www.geeklog.net/docs/install.html#glossary

i've read it!

the db-config.php file is in the main directory
the same where i uploaded the files from 'public_html'

then how do have to call that main directory?



my hosting:
public_html/mvcbrugsezot.be/db-config.php

public_html (where I upload all my stuff)
mvcbrugsezot.be/ (the directory for the site)
==> and in mvcbrugsezot.be/ i've uploaded the db-config.php file

then should i tell geeklog its in: /db-config.php or in public_html/mvcbrugsezot/db-config.php or ...
i've tried them all but none of them work...

(and sorry if i'm annoying to u, normally i don't need any help to install things on my hosting!)
and really thank you for helping me out!

You're putting too many files in a public directory. All files should be in something like:

/username/domains/domains/mvcbrugsezot.be/*geeklog files*

Then config file should be located like this:
/username/domains/domains/mvcbrugsezot.be/db-config.php

The public files should be in your public www or htdocs directory, which I'm calling public_html like Geeklog does:
/username/domains/domains/mvcbrugsezot.be/public_html/

I think now you've put everything in a public directory, which is bloody dangerous for the security of your site. You have to put them a level up/higher, above the public docs, if your hosting accounts allows you.

i've made a subdomain

http://mvcbrugsezot.gregory.jixhost.com

so
http://mvcbrugsezot.gregory.jixhost.com/admin/install/index.php

and the db-config.php file is at
http://mvcbrugsezot.gregory.jixhost.com/db-config.php

what should i tell gl so he finds the db-config.php file?

Please, first learn something about server pathes, you're making things way more difficult than they should be:
