Local copies?

For those who do not want to have the whole world peaking over their shoulder while they think of a business or other private thoughts - please comment on how difficult it would be to create and package a strictly local copy of FastBlogIT with the capability of uploading stuff to a server later.

.. why not password protected directories using FTP as the transfer protocol ?

Seth says
shouldnt be difficult at all, just put localhost in the config and run on your favorite apache local server

Mark de LA says
Yep, it's the uploading from local to the FastBlogIt out there that is the difficult part. Needs feeds.

... not sure i would do that with feeds.  why not just tab delimeted files, simple and straight forward, db to db.

You want someone going into the FastBlogIt database directly with a known format. We'll call that the SPAM port (;-))

it would obviously be a secured transfer

Mark de LA says
don't you need to know the userid/password of the db in order to connect to the database ? I would think this was being solved in relationship to feeds.

yes to connect to the db, but we dont need to do it that way.  instead connect to a FTP account, and put a background process on the server to pool that directory and whatever is in it assorb into the db.

I believe the question~answer tag has been satisfied on this item.
Seems as if we have tested this so far. It is not packaged & a lot of other considerations are there as well.
