  • Use cases

    The reasons for using multi-user blogging solutions are manifold. These reasons might be:

    • Extend existing content with user-generated content
    • Improve customer insight, and loyalty through 2-way communication
    • Improve Search Engine Marketing through increased rankings
    • New means of Digital Corporate Publishing
    • Benefit from Word-of-Mouth Marketing
  • Technical requirements

    The 21Publish Weblog Server generally runs on any platform with Java 6 and with access to a MySQL database. For any installation, recommended sytem requirements are

    • Java 6+
    • MySQL 5.0+
    • Linux-based OS (e.g. Debian Squeeze)
    • 1 GB RAM
    • 500 MB diskspace
    • Apache reverse-proxy

    We recommend to use an Apache 2.2+ as reverse-proxy for performance and configuration reasons. While our server includes a built-in webserver capable of delivering all media types, a reverse proxy such as Apache or Nginx can speed up delivery of static files significantly. Furthermore, SSL options and various performance tweaks known to Apache can be applied. For the dynamic content, our internal webserver can be used, or a Jetty 7+-based engine instead.

    Please note that we do offer hosting within our own hosting infrastructure so you don't have to worry about separate hosting options.
