Jarida Blog

This is a personal blogging software which you can use to run your very own personal blog.It is built on PHP and MySQL. So you need to have PHP of at least version 4.3 upwards and a MySQL (Version > 3.2.x) database for this application to work. Also to make use of the Photo Gallery thumbnail generation features you need to have the GD2 library modules enabled in your installation of PHP.


* Blogging (artcile, news) with photos and comments

* Easy Installation

* CSS Design

* XHTML Compliant Code

* Image Gallery, with comments

* Admin interface for managing smilies (used in comments)

* Admin interface for managing Bad Word List

* Templating system. 

* Multi Language support. This will allow translation of the CMS to multiple languages, Kiswahili being one of them of course.

* Banning users by IP addresses.

This application is released under the GPL license.


* PHP > version 4.3

* MySQL Database > version 3.2

* Web Server (e.g. Apache, IIS)

How To Install:

Extract all files from the archive while maintaining
the directory structure. Upload to your host by ftp. Make sure you set the permissions of the following to globally writable (So that they can be writable by the webserver application):

* File /include/config.php

* Folder /install

* Folder /templates

* Folder /img/upload

* Folder /img/smilies

For Windows Systems this is not an issue, for Unix type of systems, you need
to chmod the Folder or File to 777.

Observe that images should be uploaded in binary mode while text and .php
files should be uploaded in ascii mode. Most ftp clients are clever
enough to handle this.

Then you can run the Installer If you uploaded the files to
http://yourblog.com/ then run

This will ask you for your database details which you need to know, it will
then create the required tables and create the file config.php. 

If you cannot run the installer, you will need to edit the file
config.php then you need to dump the file /install/create.sql into your MySQL database.

I hope you enjoy this software.
