Movable Type is a popular Perl-based content management system for blogs. Recent versions of the software have included support for PHP-based dynamic pages. DreamHost users may want to use MySQL as the backend database for their Movable Type content.

DreamHost users may install Movable Type on their sites, but DreamHost does not officially "support" it.

Configuring MT on DreamHost

Tip: If you are installing MT within your DreamHost Account you have to delete the "dataglob" part of the path in the Weblog Configuration. Otherwise it won't work as it should.

So.. in Main Menu > Blog Name > Configuration > Core Setup > Local Site Path"

/home/.dataglob/user/domain.com/

should just be

/home/user/domain.com/

And in Main Menu > Blog Name > Configuration > Core Setup > Local Archive Path:

/home/.dataglob/user/domain.com/

should just be

/home/user/domain.com/

and

/home/.dataglob/user/domain.com/archives/

should just be

/home/user/domain.com/archives/
