Let me preface by saying I downloaded GeekLog 1.3.9. it came in a tarball. I unzipped it and moved all of the files into my directory.
I want to have my blog on my subdomain http://blog.bordumb.com
So i uploaded all the files into the /blog/ folder. Including all of the files that were inside of the public_html folder so things could be a bit more secure and much easier to install.
I got through everything for the most part except when finalizing installation, I cam upon the success.php page which is supposed to guide me to the next step of installation. This turned up blank. I was also unable to get on any other page as they were also blank.
I looked in the error log and this turned up:
[27-Sep-2004 11:22:28] PHP Warning: mysql_connect(): Access denied for user: 'blog@localhost' (Using password: YES) in /home/bordumb/public_html/blog/system/databases/mysql.class.php on line 108
As of right now in my config file, these are my settings as I believe they SHOULD be set up.
$_DB_host = 'localhost'; // host name or IP address of your DB server
$_DB_name = 'bordumb_blog'; // name of your database,
// must exist before running the installer!
$_DB_user = 'bordumb_blog'; // MySQL user name
$_DB_pass = '*********'; // MySQL password
I had set up my database last night. The database being named 'blog' and the user for the database also names 'blog'. then of course my password.
In my lib-common.php file which I was supposed to modify, i followed the directions as follws.
* Configuration Include: You should ONLY have to modify this line.
* Leave the rest of this file intact!
* Make sure to include the name of the config file,
* i.e. the path should end in .../config.php
require_once( '/home/bordumb/public_html/blog/config.php' );
Is that correct or incorrect?
I am assuming it is one of these two php files that is holding me back.
I hope someone can help me.
