Movable Type 3.34


I've upgraded to MT3.34 which has FastCGI compliance built in. To get this working with Fedora Core 6 I had to do the following:

As a normal user, go to your installation directory and unpack the MT archive, then

[odaiwai@gizmo ]$ cp mt-comments.cgi mt-comments.fcgi

[odaiwai@gizmo ]$ cp mt.cgi mt.fcgi

[odaiwai@gizmo ]$ cp mt-search.cgi mt-search.fcgi

[odaiwai@gizmo ]$ cp mt-tb.cgi mt-tb.fcgi

[odaiwai@gizmo ]$ cp mt-view.cgi mt-view.fcgi

As root, you'll need to install the following files:

[root@gizmo ]# yum install mod_fgcid perl-FCGI*

If you don't have the dries repository, you can always install the perl with:

[root@gizmo ]# perl -MCPAN -e shell

CPAN: File::HomeDir loaded ok

cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.8802)

ReadLine support enabled

cpan[1]> install FCGI

I haven't noticed any great increase in speed so far.
