How easy is it to set up the Sweetcron Lifestream by Yongfook, part III?

Rob Enslin's Sweetcron

My colleague Rob Enslin has done it! He has set up a Sweetcron. Read his blog for details of what he calls his “social portal“. But here he sums up the key skills to achieve one.

Unlike many web 2.0-flavoured hosted solutions (WordPress, Blogger etc) Sweetcron relies on you to provide the server platform and setup skills. The hardware/software and skills needed include:
  • Web access – get onto the web
  • Sweetcron signup and email address – download the files
  • FTP access – get the files across to your server
  • PHP Server – runs/understands the installed Sweetcron files
  • MySQL database – a place to store and sort the generated content
  • Text editor – edit the PHP files for configuration
  • Image editing software – amend graphics to personalise it
  • Follow and understand the technical instructions
  • Commenting app (optional) – I used Disqus

    I think a Sweetcron – a typical social mashup platform – can be used in many other ways (other than social contexts. Just how is the next challenge 😉
