Inspired by the content type simplicity of tumblr, but desireing my own self hosted solution, and unhappy with Wordpress/Drupal like overbearing solutions, I created Kindling.
Kindling is simple blogging system that has a minimilistic admin, no-b.s. template overrides, and is backed by Redis making it insanely fast.
I HIGHLY reccommend that you install the Kindling in your webserver like this:
+ /var/www/site.com/ +-- config.php +-- site/ | +-- uploads/ | +-- index.php | +-- css/ | +-- js/ | +-- img/ +-- code/ +-- theme/
The Kindling code should be placed inside the code folder. The
docroot for your virtual host should be pointed at the
/var/www/site.com/site folder. This ensures that the only PHP file in your docroot is
index.php, while the remaining exposed files are all static files.
After that, you must also have the
site/uploads/ folder present so that you may upload images. (You will also likely need to set the permissions of that folder to allow upload — Kindling will attempt to do this on its own, but may fail and ask you for help.)
