I am looking for blogging type software that will allow me to update a journal type HTML page hosted under my domain in such a way that...
1. I can protect the page through user name and password authentication entry so that only I or a few others can see it and make changes to it.
2. I do not go through a third party server to update the page under my domain but everything happens between my local computer and the hosting server only.
3. Allows for secure transmission of changes to the hosted site through secure FTP or secure copy or other secure protocol.
I can to be sure use my usual SCP (secure copy) client to upload changes manually but it would be nice to be able to have the ease of blogging software available so that someone using my computer could just fire up the blogger locally, enter their changes, and then upload them. Without knowing much of anything about HTML, FTP, secure anything, and other such things.
My domain is hosted on a *nix/Apache server. My local computer is running Windows 98.
Anyone have any suggestions?
