Dotclear is very popular today. It is a simple blogging engine built around PHP. It contains:
- Automatic installation
- Multi-blog and multi-user
- Static Pages
- Media manager
- Custom layout
For a successful installation, you need a VPS server with a LAMP stack in Ubuntu 16.04. On most stacks, files for the entire website (usually) are stored in the /var/www/html/ directory. You must go to this folder and delete all the placeholder files that are contained in it.
cd /var/www/html/ rm -rf index.php logo.png
For this step, you need to go to your MySLQ with the following command:
mysql -u root -p
Then you need to create the database and user (replace with < your password>)
CREATE DATABASE dotclear; GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON dotclear.* TO dotclearuser@localhost IDENTIFIED BY '<your_password>'; FLUSH PRIVILEGES; \q
A simple installer provided by Dotclear will be used. Make sure you are still in the / var / www / html / folder. If not, run cd/var/www/html/. Download the bootloader script.
Make sure our Apache user owns this folder.
chown www-data:www-data ./
Open a web browser and go to http: //YOUR_IP_ADDRESS/dotclear-loader.php. You will be presented with the installer page. Follow the onscreen instructions. On the second screen, you will be prompted to enter the database data. Use the following details:
Database type: MySQLi Database Host Name: localhost Database Name: dotclear Database User Name: dotclearuser Database Password: <your_password>
