NAME
blosxom - A lightweight yet feature-packed weblog SYNOPSIS
blosxom is a simple web log (blog) CGI script written in perl. DESCRIPTION
Blosxom (pronounced "blossom") is a lightweight yet feature-packed weblog application designed from the ground up with simplicity, usabil- ity, and interoperability in mind. Fundamental is its reliance upon the file system, folders and files as its content database. Blosxom's weblog entries are plain text files like any other. Write from the comfort of your favorite text editor and hit the Save button. Create, edit, rename, and delete entries on the command-line, via FTP, WebDAV, or anything else you might use to manipulate your files. There's no import or export; entries are noth- ing more complex than title on the first line, body being everything thereafter. Despite its tiny footprint, Blosxom doesn't skimp on features, sporting the majority of features one would find in any other Weblog appli- cation. Blosxom is simple, straightforward, minimalist Perl affording even the dabbler an opportunity for experimentation and customization. And last, but not least, Blosxom is open source and free for the taking and altering. USAGE
Write a weblog entry, and place it into the main data directory. Place the the title is on the first line; the body is everything after- wards. For example, create a file named first.txt and put in it something like this. First Blosxom Post! I have successfully installed blosxom on this system. For more information on blosxom, see the author's <a href="http://www.blosxom.com/">blosxom site</a>. Place the file in the directory under the $datadir points to. Be sure to change the default location to be somewhere accessable by the web server that runs blosxom as a CGI program. On Debian systems, this location default to /var/lib/blosxom/data. OPTIONS
Configuration of the blosxom can be controlled via the configuration file /etc/blosxom/blosxom.conf. Some of the possible configuration variables are: $blog_title Title of this blog. (default: "Blosxom") $blog_description Description of the blog used for RSS generation. (default "Yet another Blosxom blog") $blog_language This blog's primary language used for outgoing RSS feed. (default "en") $datadir Where are this blog's entries kept? (default on Debian: "/var/lib/blosxom/data") $url Preferred base URL for this blog (leave blank for automatic) (default: "") $file_extension Preferred ending of blog entry files (default: "txt"). Other files are ignored. $default_flavour Blog style can be controlled via templates, or flavours. (default: "html"). FILES
