A MovableType installation isn't that easy like a WordPress upload, but it has many advantages. This is a little tutorial for setting up MovableType on a basic webspace without SSH access.
- 25 MB webspace for MovableType plus some space for your assets. This blog is currently about 500 MB big including all pictures, my limit was 2 GB to be secure for further growing.
- Running CGI-Scripts is mandatory, Perl also, but I didn't every see a Linux server without Perl.
- One mySQL database
- Full background publishing queue support requires a single cronjob. It's optional but I made it mandatory for me to get smoother publishing.
You really should ask for a test account without any domain and probably without cronjobs to ensure that the server is sufficient for MovableType. Grab a current MT download from the MovableType OpenSource
homepage and upload the mt-check.cgi
script and the extlib
folder into the cgi-bin directory of the webspace. Check if the mt-check.cgi
is executable and call it using a webbrowser. All of the following modules should be considered required
for a typical blog:
- All Required Modules
- DBI and DBD::mysql
- One out of Image::Magick, GD or Imager
- Archive::Zip (for backups)
Importing WordPress data requires XML::SAX
, but the default parser engine has a bug and might fail on the import file. I strongly suggest considering XML::SAX::Expat
as required, but it isn't tested by the default mt-check.cgi
. Adding it is very easy: search for XML::SAX
within the mt-check.cgi
script, copy the block and add a ::Expat
Any other missing module should be checked, but most others are either Perl core modules or not that important, like the SMTP modules which are usually not required to send mails from servers.
