Incomplete installation instructions. It seems like known cannot correctly run when installed into a subdirectory (rewritebase modified). Never got it to run using a subdirectory.


According to the changelog this has been fixed

It is not difficult to install, but it is cumbersome, such as having to create and specify a database and touching Apache settings.
In particular, Apache AllowOverride error has occurred, but it is useless to correct as indicated. I wasted my time without even getting in.

There are many platforms that are easier to install and use than this. Don't waste your time with this.

Beautiful and easy to use. Still needs some development to be ready for 1.0 version.


Clearly mature !

I have been using Known since a little more than a year as my main publishing tool to post to corporate silo networks and it's wonderful !

you can use Known to export/import your wordpress or blogger blog/site and just get it back into your Known site easy.
than if you self host, you're able to connect a bunch of social networks to it and push your pictures/posts/status/checkins to each of them while retaining the control & ownership of your data at home. you can either get this working on your own or by using the convoy plugin (paid).

with Known you can own your data, tie it to a secure certificate (letsencrypt) and be part of the open web and still maintain the ability to reach other audiences on the corporate web.

I honestly have been waiting to make use of the internet the way I describe above since it started for me in 98 and now in 2016 this is precisely what anyone can do !
