"Enter Pubwich, a simple PHP script that aggregates data from several popular social services into a single HTML page. To run Publish on your server, you need the Apache server, PHP 5 with the SimpleXML and cURL extensions, and the crontab tool. To install Pubwich, download the latest version of the software, unpack the downloaded archive, and move the resulting folder to the document root of your server. Rename the cfg/config.sample.php file to cfg/config.php and open t for editing. Specify the parameters in the Localization and General site information sections. Next, you have to configure the settings for the services you want to use with Pubwich. To do this, you need to understand the structure of the config.php file. Each supported service is stored as an array containing the required settings."
