Information on MovableType

MovableType provides a support forum to post your questions and find possible answers.

Installing MovableType

When setting up Moveable Type create 2 subdirectories called 'mt' - one in the /docs directory, and one in the /cgi-bin directory. Install the various moveable type files to the appropriate folders suggested in the installation process (http://www.movabletype.org/docs/mtinstall.html).

Then please change the following settings in your configuration file (mt.cfg):

CGIPath

From:

CGIPath http://WWW.YOUR-SITE.COM/PATH/TO/MT/

To:

CGIPath http://x.your-site.com/cgi-bin/mt/

DataSource

From:

DataSource ./db

To:

DataSource /tmp

StaticWebPath

From:

# StaticWebPath /path/to/static-files/

To:

StaticWebPath /mt/

NOTE: this works for the v2.661 of Moveable Type (April'04).

mt-load.cgi error during MovableType installation

If you are getting "Loading initial data into system...An error occurred while loading data: Connection error: Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)" error messages, the error can likely be corrected by specifying your DBHost parameter explicitly in your mt.cfg file. If you are using your provided MySQL database, set this parameter as:

DBHost 127.0.0.1
