I’m kind of out of my depth here due to my lack of tech savvy, but I need some help. Desperately…
Over the weekend my Movable Type blog was spammed big style and is now not working. It’s still viewable on the web, but I can’t rebuild it, delete comments, or more importantly post anymore. I’m in the process of trying to fix it, but sadly with zero success.
So as a last resort (and seeing as Dreamhost has added the 1 click install!) I’m thinking of transfering my blog to wordpress.
So after that long winded preamble, here (at last) is my question. I currently have one domain (tokyotimes.org) with dreamhost which contains my Movable Type blog. Now if I install Wordpress in tokyotimes.org/wordpress will this delete the Movable Type stuff? You see I want to keep it viewable until I get the new wordpress one up and running to replace it.
If I can’t install wordpress this way, does anybody have any suggestions? I really want to get things moving quickly, as after building up a decent number of regular readers, I don’t want to lose them.
Thanks for your time, and I hope this makes at least some sense and my question aren’t too stupid!
