[nSLUG] php troubleshooting and weblog software

Hello everyone

I have a couple of questions, but some background info before that.  I 
currently run a simple html website for the research lab I work at.  It 
lets us update results of experiments on a daily/weekly basis so that my 
boss can see it from home and when he's out of town.  So far, simple 
handwritten html has served our needs, but now I would like to 
incorporate a blog for myself and a couple more users so that we can 
keep a detailed record of progress made for future reviews.  Most of the 
blogging applications I found on Sourceforge need php and mysql which 
would be an overkill, particularly mysql. 

My first question is:  Do you know of any blogging application that does 
not use php/mysql and is simple of install and use?  I would like to be 
able to edit / format blogs, add pictures, in short html blogs.

I found one application that required only php, but unfortunately the 
php installation on my Slack10.2 box is not working, which brings me to 
my second question.  I have following package installed:



The apache part works fine, but php doesn't.  If /usr/bin/php is 
executed, following error is returned:

error while loading shared libraries: libt1.so.5: cannot open shared 
object file: No such file or directory.

I searched on linuxpackages.net but could not find libt1.so.5.  Any ideas?

Thank you.
