But what gives?
Authored by: vxbush on Feb 10, '03 02:40:13PM

I have tried to install MT and have run up against a brick wall. Everything works fine if I run mt-check in a shell; everything is in place. But when I attempt to run the script via the browser, I keep getting a "configuration" error, so the CGI script won't run. My sysadmins at work have tried to to get it working, but everything looks fine to them. So all I can figure is I've got to configure something "just so" under OS X. Ideas?

a few things that could be causing you problems:

1) on OS X Server, cgi execution must be explicitly enabled for the webserver in the Server Settings under Configure Web Service->Sites->(edit current site)->Options-> Check Enable CGI Execution

2) It's simple, but I've seen it nab many people on the MT support: Your MT directory, the blog directory and your db directory (if using Berkley DB and not SQL of course) must be chmod'ed to 777 (or 755 if using suexec or that other cgi security thingy).

3) If you are running mt-load.cgi succefully but then can't post, double check your blog settings. I once accidentally set the archives web path and absoulte path to different directories on an MT install and it seemed fine until you could post.
