Tech Support needed


I have just installed Moveable Type 3.11 at and have finally managed to get it working. Boy this has been a painful process, almost three hours, and constant tech support from RackSpace. In comparison, Word Press install for VoIPDaily took five minutes and a single cigarette. However I am being foxed by some tiny issues. For instance, I cannot import anything, even though when I run the import script, I get a message: entries imported. Anyone have a clue? Desperately need your help!

Om – I thought you learned your lesson last time around… ;) Sorry to hear you are having trouble. Been a while since I dove into MT…couple things…

Assume you are running mySQL? Are you sure the DB is OK and not corrupt? Were there any issues on rebuild or errors you noticed in previous runs?

Have you looked at the exported file? You can open in a text editor and see that the entries are consistent…

Did you move the exported file into the import directory and name it properly? I recall having to say what it was called in the mt.cfg or some similar file.

Thought about another Word Press install?

Good luck!
