Hi. I just came over to DreamHost and have been working on a new installation of MT 2.661. I followed the directions here [ http://www.wombatnation.com/misc/installMTDreamHost.htm] exactly, and checked them against MT’s own installation instructions just in case.
I find myself hung up at the mt-check.cgi point. All I get is the actual CGI source. I have checked all my permissions and they are correct. The Movable Type Troubleshooting for this particular problem doesn’t help much, only says that CGI must not be turned on on my server (I’m on a shared plan), but I think it has to be, right?
I uninstalled everything and then reinstalled it all according to the instructions a total of three times, and I still can’t make it work correctly.
I’m not sure if this is related, but just in case, in the Domains>Web>Edit HTTP part of the Dreamhost Panel, I do have it checked to run PHP as CGI.
Any insight is appreciated.
