XML instead of MySQL?

    Hi there,
    i am currently looking for a Blog software which uses XML files (or any kind of plain text files) instead of a DB.

    The reason behind is that my ‘server’ is a barebone system with a 256MB compact flash card and MySQL is just too big for it.

    thanks for answers,

    bree

    You might consider blosxom, which uses plain files and perl.

    Since you’re using CompactFlash, you will want to minimize the number of write operations you perform, lest you wear out the CF media too quickly.

    I’m running WordPress on my 128mb Flash drive using Xampplite from apachefriends.org with no problems. My advice, make sure you use USB 2 or it’s a bit slow.

    Skippy has already mentioned this but it’s probably worth repeating; flash media have a finite number of erase-write cycles.

    Hence, their application in a server situation should be carefully assessed and reliable backups retained. In addition, the more you can reduce write operations, the better.
