Re: Not at all mature
Thanks for feedback. There are thousands of sites running BLOG:CMS, including sites with hundreds of blogs (multiblog sites).

Not at all mature
This product is not a mature project at all. Google the topic and the debate gets quite "lively".

This is a fork of NucleusCMS but with an out of date Doku wiki (I think that's the app) and a basic forum which are skinned to look the same but run on their own with a plug-in attempting to keep the three+ user accounts in sync.

I tried this... but lets just say the support was bad.

I simply could not recommend this at all.

Re: BLOG:CMS plagued by installation problems
Sorry for the problems, but we do assume you have a working PHP / MySQL (4.0, 4.1) and/or SQLite installation.

Re: BLOG:CMS plagued by installation problems
I installed a different PHP-based blogging system and discovered the problem: the MySQL client was denied access to the MySQL database. The PHP-installer for this blogging system was careful to report this error. I fixed it easily by repairing passwords in the MySQL database.

BLOG:CMS should report errors in the PHP-install page whenever the MySQL client fails to connect to the MySQL database server. Right now, a blank page is returned, and this is not helpful.

BLOG:CMS plagued by installation problems
I downloaded BLOG:CMS onto a Lamp setup (ie, Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) only to discover that the installation process -- albeit simple -- doesn't work at all. I went to the FAQ for BLOG:CMS and discovered that many previous users had run into similar issues. In the end, I wasted about 2 hours of my time and decided there must be other Blogging packages with a more workable installation process.
