Install Instructions
Authored by: Alex281 on Feb 10, '03 11:16:04AM
Maybe I'm missing something, but isn't this all in the install instructions? I just installed MT last week (on OS X client) with MySQL and the only thing here which required me to google search was where to get the DBI bundle. On a more positive note, Movable Type is absolutely amazing! I wish the documentation for customizing it was a little better, but I'm having a lot of fun playing with it on my site Alex281.com

yes, all of it is in the install instructions, but they're hard to follow at best. I've installed MT on both Client and Server and struggled with many of the points, particularly DBI::mysql, which some may assume (as I did) already exists with the mysql installation. Getting it to run under mySQL can be troublesome, and the resources for handling the installation are few and far between.

I've installed MT on several OSX and OSXServer boxes with zero problems, I don't see the need for this hint either... other than to get more people blogging, which would be cool in itself :)
