Installing Movable Type

You can have a Movable Type site up and running in minutes by using the Softaculous application installer in cPanel.

To install Movable Type using Softaculous, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. In the SOFTACULOUS APPS INSTALLER section of the cPanel home screen, click any of the options under Categories. The Softaculous installer page appears.

    • It does not matter which option you click under Categories. All of them start the Softaculous installer.

  3. In the Search text box, type movable type and then press ENTER.

    • Alternatively, click PERL on the top menu. From the navigation pane on the left side, click Blogs, and then click Movable Type.

  4. Click Install. The installation page appears.
  5. In the Choose Protocol list box, select the protocol.


    Note: If you have an SSL certificate installed on your site, select https:// or https://www. If you do not have an SSL certificate installed on your site, select http:// or http://www.



  6. In the Choose Domain list box, select the domain for installation, or accept the default value.
  7. In the In Directory text box, type the directory where you want to install the application, or accept the default value.


    Note: If you want your domain name to go directly to the application, make sure the In Directory text box is blank.



  8. In the Web Directory text box, type the web-accessible directory for the blog. For example, if you type myblog, the blog will be accessible at http://example.com/myblog, where example.com represents your domain name.
  9. In the Database Name text box, type the name of the database to create for the application, or accept the default value.
