Create a backend on my server for clients

    Hello there,

    First of all, I would like to say Publii is an amazing solution. I was looking for a wordpress alternative giving me full power on front-end for static websites, and it does work very well for me.

    I’m looking for creating a decoupled admin hosted on my server for my customers’ admin, instead of installing the Publii program on their computer with Dropbox, as mentioned here

    Is there any solution with some kind of POST/PUT requests, so the user can edit directly his posts from any location?

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Unless anyone else knows any different approach, I don’t think that’s currently reliably possible.

    Sure, you can have multiple people working on a single Publii website using the Dropbox approach. Though when using Dropbox updates method, naturally its best if they all coordinate between themselves so everyone in the group knows who is doing updates at any particular time.

    I am using tortoise svn to sync websites data on multiple computers. Any cloud file sync works for this. But yes, coordination is still an issue. You can’t have 2 people working on the same website at the same time regardless what you are using. Because the file that has to be merged is the local database file db.sqlite and this one can’t be merged as a normal txt file. Tortoise svn has a “get lock” and “release lock” that can help with this.

    Tortoise SVN sounds like an interesting novel approach to work around the problem for Microsoft Windows-based installs. Though, the security risks might give me the heebie-jeebies 🙂 Tortoise SVN have probably thought through all that.

    tortoise svn is the client. for server I use visual svn,algorithms%20to%20protect%20the%20backups.

    Visual svn can be installed on a windows computer, I use it with windows server.
