I need a really simple solution to build a one-person blog on a shared host: When the user wants to create/edit a blog entry, he calls a PHP script on the server which will... 1. save the raw article into MySQL 2. combine the article with a template to turn it onto a complete HTML page that will be saved on the filesystem 3. regenerate the homepage in HTML and save it on the filesystem
That way, the PHP part will be very basic, and the server will serve static HTML pages without the penalty of ever calling the PHP interpreter.
I'm sure there are applications like that out there, but all I can find are full-fledged CMS's like WordPress, TextPattern, etc. that are way too feature-rich for what I need.
Note that I do want a self-hosted, open-source application, not an account with eg. Blogger.
Does someone know of applications that would foot the bill?
