OVERVIEW

The blogspam server makes use of the Blog::Spam::Server module to present an XML-RPC server for the use of testing comments for spam.

It is ideally suited for small and medium sized blogs, forums, and similar sites which accept comments from users and which may be attacked by the submission of spam comments.

ABOUT

This script is designed to be started by a non-privileged user, where it will launch an RPC::XML::Server instance listening upon the network. By default port 8888 will be used,but this may be changed via the appropriate command line option.

All state will be stored in the home directory of the user <B>s-blogspamB> if it exists upon the local system, otherwise in the current working directory beneath a directory named <B>state/B>.

In order to ensure that scheduled tasks are completed it is strongly recommended you add crontab entries, running as the launcher, to run three jobs:



    # blogspam entries to clear caches, etc.
