Geeklog Documentation

Thank You!

First of all, a big Thank You for downloading Geeklog. We have spent a long time working on making this the best weblog software we can, and I am sure you will find it very easy to use, and very powerful.

These documents have been created to make Geeklog even easier for you! Apart from the usual stuff like how to install Geeklog, we also have provided the full Developer API documentation, so you can develop your own themes and plugins and make it even better.

Features of Geeklog

Geeklog is a weblog powered by PHP and MySQL. It allows you within minutes to set up a fully functioning dynamic website, and has many features to get you started. As of Geeklog 1.3, these features are:


GeekLog was originally developed for the Security Geeks web site and was originally authored by Jason Whittenburg. In early 2001, Jason decided it was time to devote his time to other things and the project has since been maintained by Tony Bibbs who uses Geeklog to run Iowa Outdoors. Geeklog is bona fide open-source software and has been released under the GNU GPL for use by others. Configuring GeekLog is meant to be an easy process though it will require you to have access to several components of your system.

This document is still evolving, so there may be unintended omissions or various steps may be over or under explained. It's assumed that you have some working experience with some form of Apache (or IIS), SQL databases (such as MySQL), and PHP.
