I don't suppose there is a way to have geeklog look for a renamed
"index.php" - just checking before I try to install in a subdirectory.
My host chooses index.php before choosing index.htm if both are present.

If your webserver is set up such that it searches for index.html first,
you could simply put it into the same directory as Geeklog. Since all of
Geeklog's files end in .php, there shouldn't be any name conflicts.

Another option is to install Geeklog in a subdirectory, e.g. you could


For this, you will need to separate Geeklog's public_html directory from
the rest and put the contents of public_html into the above "geeklog"
directory (or whatever you decide to call it) and the other Geeklog
outside of your document root (so that they can not be accessed via a
URL). Then you only need to set up $_CONF['path'] and
to point to the proper places (the latter should be an absolute path in
this case).

So, it's not really that different from a normal install - only that
files go into their own subdirectory and that you need to adjust one
additional path ($_CONF['path_html']).

Hope that helps.

bye, Dirk
