Malibo is used to create a blog on a website in the Internet.
The main goal is not to have the most functionality but to be a small and easy to use system.
Besides creating and editing blog entries, files can be uploaded and directly linked to. There is also a comment functions to allow visitor to write comments for each article.
Malibo includes these components:
Malibo is based on PHP and designed to run on Apache webservers.
� Apache webserver 1.3 (or newer). Note: malibo relies on the webserver to do the user authentication. Other webservers should also work, if HTTP basic authentication is supported (eg. via .htaccess file)
� PHP 5.1 (or newer)
� MySQL 5.0 (or newer) (PostgreSQL may also work but is completely untested yet)
At present there is no installation tool.
Therefore this is yet a manual task and requires good knowledge of the target system.
� Extract contents of malibo.tar.gz in a directory on the web server
� Note: It is a good idea to password-protect this directory until the installation is complete
� Setup database tables using the SQL statements in the subdirectory "installation"
� Note: If other table names will be used, the SQL statements must be adjusted
� Move the database configuration file "template/mlb_config.inc.php" to a secure location (outside the web-accessible area)
� Adjust index.php und edit/index.php to the new location of the database configuration file
� Insert database access data into database configuration file
� Password-protect the "edit" subdirectory (eg. with HTTP basic authentication via .htaccess)
� Note: Everybody who should write/edit the web contents, must have access to the "edit" subdirectory with a username and password. Additionally each username must be present in the database table mlb_users with "is_editor" or "is_admin" enabled.
� Set write permissions for everyone on the "user" subdirectory (but only there!), to allow file uploads (chmod 777)
� Insert the configuration of your web project (ie. title, author, ...) into the database table mlb_config
