[geeklog-devel] Fresh install Admin Directory Path issue

As the current install script works, it will not properly detect the Geeklog
admin directory if Geeklog is installed in a sub-directory off the web root.

The problem is caused by using the $site_url when building the
$site_admin_url variable.  Currently the following happens (using your issue
as an example):

$_SERVER['PHP_SELF'] = /gl15/admin/install/index.php

$site_url is built by removing everything after 'admin' from PHP_SELF, so
you end up with /gl15/

$site_admin_url is built by removing everything after 'install' from
PHP_SELF, which leaves: /gl15/admin/ and this is added to the end of
$site_url, which gives us /gl15/gl15/admin/  where the sub-directory that
Geeklog resides is duplicated.

The fix is simple, change line 162 of admin/install/index.php to the
following, this will build the site_admin_url variable independently of

            $site_admin_url = isset($_POST['site_admin_url']) ?
$_POST['site_admin_url'] : 'http://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'] .
preg_replace('/\/install.*/', '', $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']) ;

That should have it properly detect the correct admin path.
