I've been running MT on my site since August. They did the installation since I had absolutely no time to let myself fool around with it. It's been running flawlessly... until tonight. This afternoon around 5pm I updated an entry on the site (that hadn't been published yet), and now, at midnight, I am getting errors every time I try to post a new entry or rebuild an existing entry:
mkdir /home/.absolut/jukegrad: Permission denied at lib/MT/FileMgr/Local.pm line 104
I haven't changed the perms. i haven't touched a damn thing between 5pm and right now. I didn't get any notification of any overall database updates (the only thing that I could imagine could have happened). And now I am blocked, with a deadline on friday looming. The site is serving. I can ftp in and see the directories - nothing has been changed with the scripts since MT was installed on 8/2 - only updated files are the archive and index templates, as it should be.
Any DH/MT gurus willing to offer advice? Fwiw, mt-check.cgi is giving me a 500 error, and when I tried to see if i could just change the perms on the scripts (a wild guess), i'm getting "500 CHMOD not understood" as an FTP error.
I've filed a trouble ticket with support but that could take some time, probably more than i have to spare right now. any help, assistance, or pointers in the right direction are appreciated.
