I currently use Blogger for my site (http://www.gabeanderson.com/life) and just stumbled across Movable Type the other day. It looks really cool and quite a bit more powerful than Blogger. It will be awesome not to rely on Blogger’s site for posting, etc. and also to move all my content into a MySQL database.
Anyhow, there are obviously a number of DH users who use MT. I’m wondering if anyone might be able to provide me with a checklist of the best way to proceed in installing MT. (I’m assuming I have to do my own installation, even though some of the libraries might already be on DH, right?)
I’m even having a hard time getting the MT installation package (in GZ format) onto my server. I tried downloading to my Win2K machine, then uploading via WS FTP Pro, but when I went to gunzip MT-2.5-full-lib.tar.gz, I got this error:
[slash]$ gunzip MT-2.5-full-lib.tar.gz
gunzip: MT-2.5-full-lib.tar.gz: invalid compressed data–crc error
(I even ran dos2unix on the file prior to trying the gunzip command.)
I’ve tried to use wget to download the file directly to slash, but don’t know the exact path where the file is on MT’s servers. I’ve also tried to download the file via Lynx, and that didn’t work.
So if anyone could please offer guidance on installing MT (starting with the download), I’d really appreciate it.
