For those with shell accounts, using Pyblosxom on pidgin:

  1. Copy /usr/lib/cgi-bin/pyblosxom.cgi to ~/public_html/blog/index.cgi
  2. Copy /etc/pyblosxom/ to ~/public_html/blog/
  3. Open in your favorite text editor, the config file should be self documenting, but make shure that the datadir property is the full path to where you will store your blog entries.
  4. Create the datadir, and check the permissions on all directories and files. index.cgi must be executable
  5. create a .htaccess in the ~/public_html/blog directory looking like
    Options ExecCGI
    <Files index.cgi>
            ForceType application/cgi-script
            SetHandler cgi-script
  6. Open up a text file in your datadir called firstpost.txt and write something and save. Now test the url
