Requirements ------------ The only requirements are the Python interpreter and the sqlite3 module. Oh, and a web server, obviously. These instructions will cover the Apache web server as that's the most popular and also the biggest pain in the arse to configure. Installation ------------ Extract Bloggy to a directory that is visible to your web server, e.g. the public_html directory in your home directory. Configuration ------------- Configuration directives are located in config.py in the directory you placed Bloggy. The directory the database is to be created in needs to be writable by the web server. If you don't want everyone to be able to post to your blog you'll need to secure post.cgi somehow. This will vary depending on the web server you're using and your needs. Use your brain. If you're using Apache, one possible solution is to place the following in a file called .htaccess in the same directory as post.cgi: <Files post.cgi> AuthType Basic AuthName "Password Required" AuthUserFile /path/to/.htpasswd Require valid-user </Files> You'll obviously need to create a .htpasswd file containing your authentication credentials. This can be done using the htpasswd command.
