mt-check.cgi doesn’t give success (so matching isn’t the problem)
mt.cgi opened twice both times got stuck and returned an
“error during installation: Access denied for user ‘mt_user’@’%’ to database ‘mt’ at lib/MT/Upgrade.pm line 1076”
i don’t know whats going on.
I took mt out and put it back, retracing my steps. this time directoris match (without green success) but mt.cgi won’t run a box pops up and asks if i want to ‘open’,’save’,’cancel’ ... or the cgi error pops up again but the directories match.

Fixed the CGI Error and got the Working and Home Directories to match in the mt-check.cgi but it still doesn’t give the green success line ???
When i try and run http://localhost/mtvd/mt.cgi it gives the same CGI Error and redirects the address to “http://localhost/wwwroot/mtvd/mt/mt-update.cgi?__mode=install”

So, I’ve been trying to install MT 3.2 on Windows Server 2003 w/ II6 for [insert ridiculous amount of time here, no worries i’m sure exaggeration isn’t possible].
The pattern seems relatively consistant: Trial, error, trial, error, error, error, trial, error

I am currently running version 2.x of Movable Type on my website. With the reality of comment spam, many tools have been developed to make it less of a hindrance. Unfortunately, these tools are all designed for Movable Type 3.x.
I also look at it as a way to make a fresh start on my website. I’ve been wanting to move over to PHP for some time now and I believe this will afford me the opportunity to do so. Now, I just need to do it. 8 years ago
