Run BK on localhost, publish to Web

  1. 2 years ago

    Hi,
    I wonder, if I can run BK site editor on localhost and then manually upload only the final published directory on my web (via FTP).
    This has 2 advantages.
    First - I don't need to change any access permissions on my web folders.
    Second - no one will have any access to the editor, so the only way to edit will be from my laptop.
    Thank you for answers!

    Hello Paal,
    When BaseKit plan is purchased via your hosting provider it runs as a separate service which doesn't affect available space of your existing hosting plan.

    BaseKit is especially designed for creating and managing small sites.

    To prevent your customers from being able to access the editor, we can recommend that you would be the owner of all your customers' sites accounts.

    I hope this helps, feel free to ask any more questions.

    Regards,
    Ivan

  2. Hello Paal,
    unfortunately BaseKit is not designed to be used as a static site generator. Sites need BaseKit to run as expected.

    We are afraid it's not possible to run BaseKit editor locally, but we provide Template Development Kit that runs locally. This is however used for template developing and not for content creation.

    We have a single user access to the editor, so if your password is safe, only you can access it.

    Can you please provide us with more information about your needs?

    Regards,
    Ivan

  3. Thank you for the answer, Ivan.

    It was just an idea, if it could work.

    I have a few customers, who use their web-site just for basic presentation - a short description and contacts, basically only 1 to 3 pages.
    Some of them have only 100 MB of space, so every MB counts.
    I think about using BaseKit for those quick pages, but I do not need to store the whole BK solution on the customers' space.

    If I could for example create multiple directories with BK locally and then export only the published directory to client's space, it would save space. Also, most of those clients don't really care about editing pages themselves, so they do not need the editing part of BK.
