Subdomain to cgi script


#1

hey,
my friend once had set up on his website “weblog.domain.com” that pointed to his moveable type mt.cgi script.
i don’t think this would be difficult to set up but i’m not sure.
could i just place an .htaccess in that directory to load up the script and then just have the subdomain pointed to the directory?
is there any other or better way?
thanks.

Make the subdomain fully hosted, and install MT into the Web root, then add an .htaccess file with:

DirectoryIndex mt.cgi

MT is already installed and very much in use. can i just point the subdomain the directory it’s already in?


#4

ok… i think i got it all worked out.

thanks a lot!

Yes

Domains -> Web -> Edit

Make sure its ‘fully hosted’ and set Web Directory appropiately.
