What is Blogengine?

BlogEngine.NET is an open source .NET blogging project that was born out of desire for a better blog platform. A blog platform with less complexity, easy customization, and one that takes advantage of the latest .NET features.

BlogEngine.NET was designed using the current .NET framework and focused on simplicity, ease of extendibility, and innovative features. With BlogEngine.NET, we hope to create the natural blog of choice for all .NET developers world wide.

What is the requirements of using Blogengine?

Since blogengine has been build on a .net platform, therefore you have to ensure that your hosting plan supports and does have one new MS SQL 2005 database or MS SQL 2008 database available for the installation.

Without the accessibility of the MSSQL database, the free installation will not work and hence, your BlogEngine cannot be installed. It also requires Windows 2003 hosting with IIS 6 hosting compatible, Windows 2008 hosting with IIS 7.0 hosting compatible in ASP.NET hosting plans.
