Setting up Silt

January 30, 2010 12:41:18.930

When I first set up this site on Slicehost, I pushed up a "how did I do it" post. I recently got an email telling me that I skipped a step of interest: how did I set up the actual Smalltalk blog server?

Well, I do that somewhat manually, because I'm familiar with the process. However, I created tools for this a long while back, and I just refreshed them this morning. There's still a manual bit of intervention - my tools aren't quite as finished as I'd like. However, it works, so here are the steps:

  1. Load Silt from the Public Store
  2. Under Tools, select "Blog Manager"
  3. Click the "New" button
  4. Fill in the required fields, click the Set Up button
  5. Your blog has been set up
  6. Save the image
  7. This image can be used by starting it headless

I should also document how I start the server, since it's a bit different, and structured so that I can do live patching - I'll get to that soon.
