Outdated Setup Instructions?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, please forgive me if this question has been raised before, or if there's an obvious answer (I couldn't see anything in this forum with a quick look).

 

I'm completely new to Movable Type, though certainly not HTML, CSS and web design! I was following the guide to setting up MT (http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/help/id76.htm) but it doesn't seem written for the latest version of MT that I'm using, MT 3.31

 

For example, the guide mentions mt.cfg in step 3.1, but no such file exists. I assumed the equivalent is mt-config.cgi-original??? I edited this as close to what the guide said, but it didn't feel right! Anyway, after this I'm told in step 3.2.1 to go to edit mt-db-pass.cgi yet this file is not listed either. What should I be looking for?

 

Again, apologies if this is blindingly obvious and I've missed it! Hope someone can point out where I've gone wrong.

OK, I seem to have got MT up and running (well, I'm logged in and playing!) anyway, so I guess maybe the guide just has 1 or 2 superflous steps now... maybe!

Most of us who helped with the MT installation instructions have moved to other options. :wallbash:

Thanks for the info guys. Everything seems ok anyway. Now all Ihave to do is learn a helluva lot about layouts and templates to personalise my site! Fun though!

If you are new to MT you may want to look at Wordpress too. It's a one-click install from the Fantastico library in your cPanel.

 

Most of us that helped with the MT instructions have migrated to Wordpress.
