FireBlog is a Weblog application completely written on mono with C# all from scratch, because i needs a blog application for .net and beacuse i love write a software from scratch i have start this project, this application is fully working but user grant permission is not implemented, all user for the moment are admin.
The goals of this document is to provide the reader with a Working FireBlog application on our mono based server
Getting the Source and Other Requirements
Getting the source code are very simple you can go at http://dotnetfireball.homelinux.net/portal/project_viewer.aspx?file=fireblog.xml and download the binary package with source code and extract it on the destination folder.
Compiling the Source Code
Compiling the source code isn't necessary beacuse i have provided on the package the binary version, but if you like to recompile it you can execute the compile.sh file.
For run correctly your Blog you need to set correctly the permission of data folder with this istruction
chmod 770 data/ -R
Now open the file users.xml on the data folder and change the attribute password with you own password.

Now you can test the Blog with navigate to you site at http:///fireblog our with running xsp and navigate to http://localhost:8080/.
For running it correctly ensure you have added to your site the directive DirectoryIndex with the value index.aspx
