Installation Notes 
  1. Download file and unzip to a folder (say SimplyBlog/) where you want SimplyBlogs Installed (hopefully a folder that is served by a Microsoft IIS) 
  2. Create a Microsoft SQL Server (version 7 or 2000) database, or open an existing one.
  3. Open a connection to the database via Microsoft Query Analyzer Open SimplyBlogCreate.txt file via File Open and then Execute (F5) 
  4. Open the file admin/globals.asp and change the g_ConnStr to the connection string to the database.


That's it !

You can start blogging via connecting to the folder via a browser. The /admin folder underneath serves as the editing and management interface. The initial login is SimplyBlog and the password is SimplyBlog.

Example: If you installed SimplyBlog in a folder called c:/Inetput/www/SimplyBlog then 
http://localhost/SimplyBlog/  is your example blog
http://localhost/SimplyBlog/Default.asp?txtLogin=SimplyBlog&txtPasswd=SimplyBlog will take you to the editor



  1. To create multiple blogs, add new rows to the ccBlogs table. Each blog must have its own Admin folder.
  2.  To create blogs with multiple authors, add new rows to ccLogins table
  3.  To integrate with your existing shortcuts, or glossary databases, look the procedure CrowBot.Integrate() method. To allow IP based authentication, look at AssertAuth() function. You can hardcode the IP or read it from a database table.
