Movable Type 3.3 Released!

Recommended Posts

MT 3.3 has been released today! This is the long-awaited upgrade to MT 3.2.


* MT 3.3 features

* New licensing & pricing (free personal license with unlimited users / unlimited blogs / no support is back!)

* New documentation, including downloadable User Manual and Installation Guide


I participated in the beta testing of MT 3.3, and like MT 3.2, this another upgrade well worth getting! :clapping:


My single favorite new feature in MT 3.3: Activity Feeds. I can get notifications of new comments / trackbacks (and anything else recorded in MT's Activity Log) in my newsreader. Plus, checking an Activity Feed triggers MT's new Scheduled Tasks framework, eliminating the need for cron jobs to perform scheduled posting of entries or deleting junk comments / trackbacks.


(Side note: When you download and install MT 3.3, the version will actually indicate 3.31. That is the correct version.)

Hey MT Gurus... any ideas what I'm missing when I get this error?

I was upgrading from 3.31 to 3.32 last night, and yes, I've reuploaded all the files, checked all the permissions,

and it has to be something very stupid and easy because I can't see it :clapping:

I got it!! Turns out my databse password was off by one letter, I went through cPanel and deleted then readded that user to that database... success!

I have downloaded the 3.3 package and uploaded it to my site. I have unpacked it and edited the mt-config.cgi. I am getting an "Unable to connect" error. I tried running the wizard and get the same error.


Database name is mtdb and user is mtadmin. Pretty bland stuff. Of course I prefix both with my cPanel user ID and an underscore, e.g cPaneID_mtdb. Password is correct. SQL database is already setup. User is already setup and assigned to the database.


Any clues? Any gotchas I need to know about?


Also, in previous versions, instruction called to run mt-load.cgi. I do not see an mt-load in this version. What actually builds the tables in SQL?


Thanks guys and gals.

Maybe the documentation will shed some light on it.


I've got the documentation and that does answer the 2nd question, but not the 1st, at least as fard as I can tell. Still get a "can't connect" error. Do I have to identify a port. I am leaveing localhost as the server ID. Is that correct?
