Where is the best place to get help on installation? I've got the files unpacked on the server, can log in to mysql, but that's as far as I can get in the instructions.


I believe all you need to do is to edit config.php in the install root, and common.php in the public_html folder. Put in the path to the geeklog files, and the database user/pass in config.php.


What about the setpermissions bit? That's where I left off. It's not a command that my shell recognizes. I have to say that the instructions assume a higher degree of expertise than I possess.

Assuming you are on a *nix box do the following: chown -R <webuser>:<webuser> /path/to/geeklog/ Replace <webuser> with what username your webserver runs as (usually nobody or apache). chmod -R 777 /path/to/geeklog/logs/ chmod -R 777 /path/to/geeklog/public_html/backend/ If that doesn't work, share what version of Geeklog you are trying to install.
The reason people blame things on previous generations is that there's only one other choice.
