Here's my situation:
I have a SOHO network behind a NAT Router/Firewall. All requests go to
the Linux server (HTTP, FTP, SMTP, etc.) I use the Linux server for a
file server as well as to serve web pages, etc., to the outside world.
I use Windows XP as a desktop OS otherwise.
I would like to set up an easy-to-use blogging system that would allow
me to edit/add content to the published blog from my Windows system, and
serve the blog pages from my Linux server, which runs Apache 2.x.
The good thing of course is that I have complete control over the
webserver, so I can be as flexible as I want to be, but I'd still like
to keep it simple.
I would probably like to have the capacity to allow outside comments on
blog articles, though that's not absolutely necessary if it would overly
The problem is that there is just a plethora of products out there, and
I have neither the time nor the inclination to download, install and try
out everything. Time is of the essence.
I would like some recommendations based on the scenario I've described.
Feel free to ask further questions. Although this obviously helps me
out, I suspect there are many out there in my same predicament for whom
such a discussion would be welcome.
Thanks and regards from Texas, USA.
