"While there are quite a few services that offer free blog hosting, there are situations when you’d want to run a blog on your own server. This approach has its advantages, but setting up a server and then installing and configuring a blog system can be a daunting proposition – unless you choose to use Tonido, that is. This solution offers everything you need in one neat , easy-to-install package.

"Tonido software is available as binary packages for many popular Linux distributions, including Ubuntu, Fedora ,and openSUSE. To install Tonido on Ubuntu, download the .deb package and double-click on it. Use then the GDebi tool to install Tonido on your machine. To launch Tonido, choose Applications -- Internet -- Tonido. Once Tonido is up and running, you can access it by pointing your browser to On the first run, you have to create a Tonido account, which takes just a few minutes. By default, Tonido cannot be accessed from the Web, so your blog (as well as other Tonido applications) remain private. But if you wish to publish your blog on the Web, you can do so by tweaking Tonido’s Web access settings. First, switch to the Advanced View interface, navigate to Settings -- Network, and press on the Run Web Access Setup Wizard link. This starts a wizard that guides you through the process of configuring the Web access. Once you’re done, click on the Blog link in the Dashboard to open the Thots blog."
