how about this - I try to explain to you how to set up everything and you add
this information to the wiki page - this way it is written from a user's view
what might help other users :)
Get my CGI examples from here  and add a password file in the same directory
but make sure it's inaccessible from web through a .htaccess file  and
create a subdirectory data (this is where your diary files will be stored).
On your Freerunner you have to configure the send script (it's a really easy
shell script), to match your username/password and CGI script on your server.
So what happens is:
You execute the send script on your moko (using the button) and it will send
your file via curl to your server. The file will be stored in data/
The diary.kml file is a perl script as well that creates a kml. file (e.g. you
can link it directly to google maps). To make it work you have to define .kml
files as CGI in your webserver config .
What happens if someone "downloads" the diary.kml file:
The script is executed on your webserver and offers a real kml file for
download. So all you need to do is use the link to your kml file somewhere.
Just a note on the .htaccess file. It alows you to execute scripts in current
directory and tells your web server to execute .kml files. Access to passwd and
data are not allowed (to protect your data).
If you need any more help or I did not express myself clearly enough just let
me know. I hope at some point someone will understand what all this is for :)
 exmaple .htaccess:
AddHandler cgi-script .kml
RewriteRule ^passwd$ - [forbidden]
RewriteRule ^data/.*$ - [forbidden]
