I’m in the process of re-installing MovableType 3.1. I think I know why the install didn’t work the first five times I did it. It wasn’t the permissions nor the paths. The 500 error I got was because the Perl scripts couldn’t find the files they were trying to execute. Why? Because I had set my FTP program (WS_FTP) to convert all file names to lower case letters. I do this because I standardize all file names that way to be consistent.
In a Unix based operating system like FreeBSD, case is important. I don’t want to jinx things so I’ll say no more until I have MT up and running.
Please remember to bookmark my current.html page as that will always point to the current post. Thanks for your understanding.
