Installing Movable Type 4.261

Had to setup a new MovableType 4 (MT4) to test out the new Social Networking thingy called Motion. Got stuck with "mt-static" not found even though I've supplied the correct url, path and even reconfigured apache thinking it was the problem. Finally, a damn fine solution that's not even in MT's documentation site:

1. cp mt-config.cgi-original mt-config.cgi
2. Supply the correct path/url to CGIPath and StaticWebPath
3. Supply the information under DATABASE SETTINGS
4. If you haven't done it yet, create your database

Open http://domain/cgi-bin/mt/mt.cgi or http://domain/mt/mt.cgi depending on how you're setup.

It should ask you for your account details, password, and shit.
