So, I’ve come to hate Moveable Type…
Loretta’s blog was done in Moveable Type on my Mac OS X server. I set it up for her before she went to Japan, so she’d have some place to post what she was doing and some pictures for me and her family, and it worked ok, as long as I didn’t do anything to touch the server.
Except, I’m now trying to get rid of that server and move to my hosted server at DreamHost. Except, I can’t get the damn export from MoveableType to work at all. In fact, near as I can tell it’s trashed the database or something so bad I can’t even get the stupid thing to admit that it’s got a blog there for her at all. I’ve got a saved set of the html pages that are Loretta’s blog ( so we haven’t lost any content ); it’s just totally un-reachable via the MoveableType apis or scripts, so I can’t just do an export and import up on the server.
So, I’ll have to just copy and paste all 50 or so entries from her old blog into new entries in order to not loose anything.
