I posted a couple of entries yesterday afternoon, and was rather dismayed to see that they never made it onto my main page. After dinking around unsuccessfully, I finally posted a message to the Movable Type support forum. A few other people who also use DreamHost piped up to say they were having the same problem.
Turns out DreamHost did some server shuffling, and my MT install was moved to a different cluster (which I determined by running mt-check.cgi). I also discovered this morning that I couldn't log in to MT. I wound up ftp'ing in to download MT.cfg so I could fix the clustername in the database path. That got me in. On the advice of a support forum poster, I've removed the cluster name from the Local Site Path in my blog config - that is, instead of
Anyway, the upshot is that I'll be reposting what I lost later (the backup is at home). It appears that a couple of comments from yesterday afternoon got lost as well, so if you don't see the comment you left, I didn't delete them. I will try to recover them as well, but I don't think I'll be successful there as I don't have a backup of them. Sorry about that.
