Any practical advice how set Blosxom up?
Authored by: n8gray on Jun 01, '04 08:05:16PM
Any practical advice how set Blosxom up if you run it on your own computer? I mean, should one add oneself to staff (the group for the docs folder) or change the group (for the docs folder) to admin?

You already are in the staff group.

Is there any way to get static html pages (i.e. files) out of it, that I could mirror to a webserver with a fixed IP?

Yes, if you run blosxom.cgi from the command line it will generate static pages. You need to give it some info first (a location where to put the files, which files to generate, and a password to make it harder for random browsers to activate this feature). See this page for details.

Also, I've written a blog entry that might help you understand the permissions issues with setting up Blosxom.
