It all begins somewhere

So I just wrestled MovableType to the ground and won a great triumph. As well documented as things seem, there are some things that aren't clear.

1. Where should you put your blogs (~/public_html, /var/www/..., near the "db" directory)?
2. Furthermore some of the URLs that it wants aren't clear "Full Site URL" Is that or Or the archive URL.
3. Also I has some weird permission problems with "rebuilding indexes" It wasn't clear what it was complaining about (the dir was 777) but the problem went away.
4. I expected that the act of authoring and publishing would be a little more seemless. Instead I write up something. Publish it, and then rebuild the site.

That's it for now.

  1. Ah... So I jumped the gun. You only get presented with the "Rebuild" option when you "create" a blog not everytime you author something.
