  1. On the contrary, it seems a policy issue, not a technical one. Everything I'm reading tells me that WPMU can work fine with shared hosting, with simple, minimal and non-threatening changes to the httpd.conf file to set up virtual hosts correctly. See http://mu.wordpress.org/forums/ for many posts on this. And see here: http://www.blogopreneur.com/2006/11/06/ins...anelwhm-server/ and http://photomatt.net/2003/10/10/wildcard-d...nd-sub-domains/ It's not an issue of wildcard DNS because a test of my existing subdomains shows that they resolve to the same IP, which can be checked here:
  2. I'd like to add to this discussion. I want to check a detail with you. I have a Wordpress blog on one subdomain of my site. I wanted to set up other blogs on other subdomains. I would be the single user; I'm not aiming to allow others to create their own blogs. Someone on the Wordpress IRC channel recommended WordpressMU. I installed it, but ran into problems as I was running in "subdomain mode". The problem is to do with subdomains. Someone on the channel told that I don't need wildcard DNS, but rather "wildcard name based virtual hosting". He said there was a difference. Either that or "
  3. without rhyme or reason - or me touching a single thing - the setting in the first screenshot seem now to be working!
  4. Here are two screenshots of the inputed SMTP values. Maybe someone can tell me if something is wrong here. Neither seem to work
  5. I did all of that. I want to use an SMTP with my own domain. Authentication is on, and I even changed the port to 26 incase 25 is blocked with TotalChoiceHosting.com. But still it fails. But the way, I love you guys but in the CPanel I think the instructions for setting up email could be improved, just a little
  6. I have a niggling problem with Mail.app in MacOSX. I followed carefully all the guidance in this thread and when I try to send (via port 26) in the Mail.app it shows "100% done", but the mail never leaves the Out tray (which would signify it was actually sent). After a while of spinning like this it says: Sending the message content to the server failed. The server response was: server88.totalchoicehosting.com SMTP incoming data timeout - closing connection. Either that or this: Sending the message content to the server failed. The server response was: An error occurred wh
  7. Hi! I deleted my SQL database for Movable Type installed on my site. Now I can't login here: http://www.powerfoundation.org/mt/mt.cgi because my user is unknown, and Melody Nelson is also unknown! What do I do? Please don't tell me I have to reinstall everything! I know, I know ....... you pay for your mistakes. But it took me the whole weekend to configure it only to lose it by pressing delete on the wrong database in my cPanel when I was trying to add a bulletin board! I know I suck
  8. Thanks so much, guys! Templates next!
  9. That thread is very useful; as you'll see, I posted a separate problem there as I was dealing with the same kinds of problems others had there. But no one really deals with - or raised - this specific problem I have. i don't know if I'm doing this right. Really what I'd like to have is three weblogs hosted on subdomains of my site: e.g., http://v1.powerfoundation.org/mt, http://v2.powerfoundation.org/mt, http://v3.powerfoundation.org/mt. Does this mean I should have three installations running across the respective subdomain areas? Or can I have ONE MT installation on my whole site but hav
  10. Hi, I'm trying to install MT in subdomains of my site. I successfully installed it in the main site area, but I'm having problems with the subdomains. When I run mt-check.cgi it tells me that everything is okay except that my server doesn't have DBD::SQLite and Crypt::DSA installed. Obviously these are somewhere, but I guess I have to configure some file to give a specific route to these files, so it can work. Can someone help? Can anyone run me through the necessary changes I have to make to make sure that a subdomain installation works? Thanks!
  11. disregard my last post ......... Not exactly how, but the problem is solved. In particular, users should pay attention to not having "<" quotes around the values for Database and DBUser in the mt.cfg file and making sure which they need, a dash ("-") or an underscore ("_"). In my case, underscores NOT dashes. Welcome, ian, victorious to the world of blog!
  12. I've done all of these. My mt.cfg file looks like this: but I when I run mt-load.cgi I get this message:Bad ObjectDriver config: Connection error: Access denied for user: '@localhost' (Using password: YES) Also, though I can't see what it is (mind you, i'm CODE BLIND), there is a problem with my SQL database, I think. When I open the MySQL manager in the cPanel I see this: Does anyone know what is going on here?
