The MT Move: Oh Dread!

If anybody has a link to or information on the nittygritty of moving a MT blog from one server to another, I am all ears. Someone did the export from blogger to MT for me, thank her very much, and even that was confusing.

I know I need to download MT and extract it. Then, after I have set up space on the new server, upload it. And after that, import my weblog files from the old to the new server. That's about the extent of what I know, and I'm painting with a very broad brush. The devil's in the details. And I'm not able to find much of the particular do's and don'ts by Googling.

For the time being, I guess the heat is off. Fragments won't be migrated to the mySQL database tomorrow, since I have told my benefactor that I will be moving the weblog. I would sure love to get this done over the weekend, but am waiting on the domain name registration to be finalized.

Meanwhile, we are in the midst of yet another ice storm and were without power for 6 hours today. Expecting 50 mph winds and snow showers tomorrow. And all this BEFORE Christmas! Hey, Winter IS BACK!!!!

Just landed here from another site and had a great read. I don't know much about MT but enjoyed the other posts.

We'll be back!
Have a great weekend.

Hey Fred. I know almost squat about MT also, but if you email Kristine at our group blog, (look for her in "about the cooks"), i'm pretty sure she can lend you all the help you need. She's been using MT for quite sometime and she's a nice gal to boot! Then c'mon over... i'll make some hot cocoa and you can watch the snow fall on lake ontario out back. Up here, it falls with attitude!
