Install MovableType on OS X Server
Authored by: theolog on Feb 24, '03 03:18:35PM

Okay -- just for all you fellow slow learners out there, in step 4 when it says to add these lines:

Database 'database_name'
DBUser 'user'

you should NOT include the quotes ( ' ) and should have, at this point (as best as I can tell), already created a database :-).

Hope this helps -- sometimes I'm a little slow on the draw!

couple of other tips

Installing MySQL: I used Complete MySQL from Server Logistics and it seems to work great. If you are running Mac OS X Server DO NOT INSTALL MYSQL -- it is already installed! Only 10.2 client systems need the MySQL installer.

Once MySQL is installed and running, you will have to create a DB: (Complete MySQL suggests adding the appropriate $PATH to your .tschrc file first)

>create database mtdb;

(I used 'mtdb' but anything will do as long as it matches the DB name in the mt.cfg file)

The mt.cfg can also use 'root' as the MySQL login, it doesn't mean root access to your machine.

You should create the 'archive' folder inside your /Library/WebServer/MovableType directory so it doesn't complain later.

happy blogging!
