MyMTOS - Yet another MTOS fork
Thank you for choosing MyMTOS, the premiere solution for your blogging and website management needs. This file will explain how to get up and running; click on the highlighted sections for more information on that subject.
Before You Begin
MyMTOS requires the following applications:
- Perl 5.8.1 or greater;
- A web server like Apache or Windows IIS;
- Access to a database like MySQL;
- The following Perl modules:
- File::Spec (0.8 or greater)
- DBD module like the followings
If you are upgrading to MyMTOS from a previous version, we recommend that you first back up your old installation. Database backup is especially important to restore your system in case of any trouble during the upgrade process. Upload MyMTOS's files over the same files from the previous version of MyMTOS. Access MyMTOS as you normally do, and you will be taken through the upgrade process.
Before you install MyMTOS:
- Upload all of MyMTOS's files into a directory or folder accessible via your web browser. We recommend that you separate your published content from the MyMTOS executable programs by placing each in a separate directory. Typically, the installation directory is called 'mt' and is located in the root directory of your website or within an existing directory that is already configured to allow CGI script execution.
- Make sure that the 'mt' directory containing the uploaded MyMTOS files has been enabled to execute CGI scripts.
- Make sure that each .cgi file (e.g. mt.cgi, mt-search.cgi, etc.) found in the MyMTOS directory has the execute permission enabled.
- Open that folder in your web browser --
- You should see a MyMTOS welcome screen that will take you through the installation process. If the welcome screen does not appear, please consult Troubleshooting MyMTOS below.
