I assume all these are available on Knownhost as they mention on MT forums that most hosting providers have them?
Internal Server Error
- Use a Web browser to connect to the Movable Type Download page and follow instructions there to download the Unix/Linux/Mac OS X (.tar.gz) release file to your personal computer. (done)
- Extract the Movable Type files from the release file into a new folder on your local computer. You will need a program that can uncompress and extracts tar files. If you don't have such a program, you can learn how to get one on the gzip home page, http://www.gzip.org. (done)
- Start your FTP program and connect to your Web server using your server login name and password. (done)
- Copy the mt-static directory from your local computer to the Web root directory on the Web server. (done)
- Open the cgi-bin directory on your Web server. Make a new directory within it named mt. Copy all of the other Movable Type installation folders and files to the mt directory. (i assume this is the cgi-bin directory under public_html, done)
- Make sure all the Movable Type cgi files (files ending with .cgi) in the mt directory on the Web server have execute permission. You should be able to select these files and check their properties with your FTP program. (done)
- Make sure the support directory found within your mt-static directory is writable by your web server. (done)
- Start a Web browser and run the installation wizard by connecting to the following Web address: http://domainname/cgi-bin/mt/mt.cgi where "domainname" is the domain name for your blog. and this is where it gives me the error posted below.
Thanks for your help Paul. I gotta ask though, if that is the case with accounts with cpanel, does that mean MT users at KH have a custom solition or there's some other method where I can get rid of cpanel and have cgi-bin where MT wants it to be? Cheers.Xiety,
On cPanel servers cgi-bin directory is located inside the public_html directory.
Make sure all the Movable Type cgi files (files ending with .cgi) in the mt directory on the Web server have execute permission. You should be able to select these files and check their properties with your FTP program. (done)
