I just signed on with DreamHost and I’m trying to setup MovableType. I’ve successfully installed it on several servers at work, both OS X Server 10.3 and RedHat 7.3 with no problems.
Now when I try to install it at DreamHost, the install gets screwed up because there is no CGI-BIN directory outside of the publicly accessible root web directory. And it seems DH is running CGIwrap for extra security.
How do you install MovableType in this environment?
I tried creating a CGI-BIN in the root web directory and installing MT there, but the DB abd all the CGI are exposed.
I then tried creating a PUBLIC-HTML directory in the domain folder and tried change that to the root web directory. Didn’t work.
Should I not worry about secure directories at all and NOT follow the MT install instructions and put everything into a single _movabletype directory and run everythign from there? Is that secure?
Any help would be appreciated…
