If you have ever visited a website that can be constantly updated several times in a day and where you will find the latest content presented first, and then you will know what a weblog is. What's more, weblogs and blogs usually have certain features that can be used in order to even update the content by simply having to use the web, which will allow users to post content without needing to know about technical aspects such as what an FTP is or about HTML for that matter.
A weblog has become increasingly popular and the main reason for this is that the technology used allows users to avail of a number of free tools and thus use the Net and even Intranet to begin a weblog almost instantaneously. Thus, useful tools allow you to post via the webs, and which also allow users to give their comments in response to the posted blogs.
One of the better weblog building tools is the one known as B2 weblog, which is a collection of programs that are written in PHP which is a scripting language which works along with MySQL, which is a database management system and together users can launch their weblog that has many features in a matter of a few minutes.
However, the system can only be made functional when there is a MySQL server available as well as PHP software and also a web server installed in the user's machine.
All that you then need to do to install your B2 weblog is to download the archive from cafelog.com and extract the files into a directory, and with a few tweaks such as creating a database that will hold B2 tables and to also edit the file named B2config.php you can be on your way. In a nutshell, that is all there is to using the B2 weblog.
