Install MovableType 4 on Dreamhost

I test the Beta 1 brand new installation at my Dreamhost server. It is very easy to install it.


1) Add new sub-domain in Control panel of Dreamhost;
add-domain-at-dreamhost

2) Add MySql database which will be needed later;
I add a database named “mt4beta” as below:
add-mysql-at-dreamhost

3) Login you host through PuTTY;
Use the PuTTY to login the server through SSH.
4) Get the file from web.

cd mt4.g2soft.net<br />wget http://sippey.typepad.com/mtbeta1/MT4-beta1-20070605.tar.gz

5) Decompress the package.
wget-tar-mt4-beta1

6) Rename it to folder, mtcgi

mv MT4-beta1-20070605 mtcgi
