Movable Type: Cronjob and Scheduling Post

apps

#1

I am attempting to set up the “scheduling post” feature in Movable Type 3, and already:

  1. enabled SSH on my account
  2. successfully installed PutTY
  3. ran the cron job required

using this thread:

I also already set permission 755 to the MT run-period-task script.

I’m pretty sure the script is working, but scheduled post won’t publish. I’m getting this weird error:

[quote]Can’t locate MT/Bootstrap.pm in @INC
(@INC contains: lib …/lib /etc/perl
/usr/local/lib/perl/5.8.4 /usr/local/shar
e/perl/5.8.4 /usr/lib/perl5
/usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.8 /usr/s
hare/perl/5.8 /usr/local/lib/site_perl .)

I’ve contacted Dreamhost support, but they’ve provided no help. I’ve also tried countless searches online and in the Movable Type forum, but I can’t get any troubleshooting tips for this particular problem.

Is there anyone who could help me with this? Please? Thanks in advance!

my crontab entry looks like this:

Is that what you crontab entry looks like? If not, try that - changing the appropriate parts for your install and see if that works.
