Installing Movable Type 5?




Does anyone have any experience installing Movable Type? I’ve tried following the instructions on here and the ones from the Movable Type site but all I get is a 500 Internal Server Error.

I upload the mt-static and then the mt without the mt-static inside and I’ve tried using 755 and 777 and neither work.

Any tips?


It’s been a while since I’ve played with MT, but I’ve definitely used it on DH, and have run test installs off and on just for kicks. Can you paste your error.log from a recent attempt to access an MT page?


Hey, thanks for offering, I actually finally was able to figure it out.

I had to get and change all the permissions for the cgi files individually :confused:

Thanks again though!
