How to setup a blog for visitors of my Linux website.


I wish to setup a blog for visitors of my Linux website.

Can some one tell me what I need (software, hardware, etc.)?

Or, point me to a HOWTO.

Thank you very much!

I set up a WordPress blog in about 15 minutes. It's easy to use, well documented, well maintained and under constant development. It has been around for a very long time and there are hundreds if not thousands of extensions and themes available for it. You can set it up as a single blog (WordPress) or if you like you can use WordPress Mu which will allow you to host multiple blogs in a single data file.

You can also set up a blog at and link it to your site.

Hi AuroraCA and j.todd

I followed your pointers and did some reading.
I am happy to learn that WordPress can over me what I need.
I need to make sure that there are PHP and MySql on my server.

But I cannot see the difference between "WordPress MU" and "WordPress".

My goal is to give visitors a place to discuss and provide feedback
to my website.

Thanks again!
