First time posting here. Hope there’s a solution somewhere!
I’ve been running MovableType v3.34 on a Dreamhost server for about a month. I had moved it from my old server with few problems (surprisingly)… but in the last month something odd has occurred…
Every time I try to post something new, or somebody trying to post a comment, a 500 Internal error (egads!!!) pops up. Strangely, the post (or comment) is added to the site just fine. Yet the error shows up every time an action is taken… contacting DH support didn’t help too much…
I was told to check the error.log for any specifics…
This error is entered into the log any time I try to post in MT:
[Tue Aug 07 06:03:15 2007] [error] Callback called exit at mt.cgi line 11.

[Tue Aug 07 06:03:15 2007] [error] Premature end of script headers: mt.cgi
I sent this tip to support and got this response:

There are ways to increase the memory limit on PHP, but it is rather
You kinda have to know your way around things to do this, and we aren’t
able to help you with the process. I would recommend asking around both
on the discussion forums here, as well as at the MT forums.
This is why I use WordPress! Let me know if you have any other
Okay, well I understand they have limited resources to help specifics, but I’m not ready to abandon MT and move to Wordpress (nothing against WP, just don’t see this as my final option)…
Any ideas? I’ll admit I’m not too savvy when it comes to PHP, and obviously there is a memory overload issue here.
Any help would be appreciated.
