At work I use my netbook to write down meeting minutes, notes, mindmaps and tasks (gtd) . Therefore I use freemind and thinkingrock.
Now I want a tool for writing a diary. Why? I want to optimize the preparation for my annual performance review. So fare I used a mindmap, but this was way off perfect.
Today I reorganized myself 🙂 and looked for a desktop diary tool. There are a lot of tools outside. I tried rednotebook. No thanks. I thought about my requirements and than I got it. Why not using WordPress. WordPress allow me to enter multiple notes a day, I can categorize and I can tag my content. Perfect.
So here we go:
First turn on the LAMP:
I think you got it already
sudo apt-get install apache2
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
Maybe you want mysql-admin, too.
sudo apt-get install mysql-admin
sudo apt-get install php5 libapache2-mod-php5
sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-auth-mysql php5-mysql phpmyadmin
To get PHP to work with MySQL, uncomment the “;extension=mysql.so” line in
sudo gedit /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini
Finally, restart apache
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart
Now the LAMP should be on.
Next, install WordPress
Extract your WordPress archieve
sudo tar zxvf wordpress-x.x.x.tar.gz --directory=/var/www/
Open http://localhost/phpmyadmin and go to
Create a user
wordpress and check the box to create a database with the name of the user as well.
Goto /var/www/wordpress/ and copy the wp-config-sample.php file to wp-config.php and edit wp-config.php:
// ** MySQL settings ** //
Run the Installation Script
http://localhost/wordpress and start your private desktop blog.
