    Blogging Software

    Anyone know of any software I could run/install on the school network (could be on a separate PC as I have one comming spare) to allow a Blogg to be created like Wordpress etc. I know I could just set up one on Wordpress but the school just want this set up totally internal.

    Oh forgot to add...the usual price range £0 to £0 (free) is required!

    The software that runs Wordpress.com is available for free on Wordpress.org to install on your own server.

    Also the multi-user version of wordpress - WordPress MU Home

    Depends how you want to use it.

    I would recommend Wordpress which can be downloaded from WordPress › Blog Tool and Publishing Platform and can be installed locally for use by many users. If you want to install multiple blogs, then you need to use WordPress MU Home as mentioned in a previous post.

    As already mentioned Wordpress is the way to go.

    It can be run from your servers, or try XAMPP to run from pen drives too (great for showing at presentations etc.

    Loads of install guides for the XAMPP side, really good one here : WordPress - Xampp
