More photo blog stuff
I updated my Photoblog
this past weekend
and migrated it to start using the PixelPost
This is my first foray into the world of MySQL and PHP programming, but I found it to
be surprizingly easy and smooth. I was already pretty familiar with CSS and scripting, so
it wasn't much of a problem. The really nice thing is the way it keeps track of things
in the MySQL db and the nice administrative interface so I can upload pics and keep track of
comments and categories with a nice interface.
So, for anyone interested in managing their own photoblog site (as opposed to using Flikr or one
of the other blog services) and learning a bit about the LAMP (Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP) paradigm,
I highly recommend PixelPost. Most major web hosting services (I use Lunarpages) offer all of the pieces you need to
get started with something like this - including MySQL DBs, and PHP support.
