Movable Type 4: Live, but a bit poorly
My, what an interesting few hours it’s been. We went live with MT4 circa 11am this morning. While, on the whole, its been plain sailing, a couple of issues have cropped up. We’ve been getting internal server errors in the user interface, which Nicholas has tracked down to issues with FastCGI and the mt.cgi script. Thus we’ve disabled FastCGi on the servers handling the posting interface, and are hoping that the problem will go away.
We’re also having to set up some URL rewriting to handle elements of the change from Windows to Linux that mean case-sensitivity in URLs is an issue.
Oh, and one of our bloggers has used the problems to make a point. Transparency’s good, right?
