I’m trying to install MT on my server, and I’m starting to lose my marbles.
I’ve uploaded all the files, changed perms, double checked I’ve got the correct paths - but I keep getting the following error when I open the wizard -
[i]Error: ‘http://www.**.com/mt-static/’ could not be found. Please move your static files to the directory first or correct the setting if it is incorrect. [/i]
I’ve contacted my hosts and they are guessing this is the reason:
[i]Our server blocks HTTP connections back to itself. In other words, a script running on the web server can’t make a HTTP connection to another script on that server. This is done for performance reasons - misconfigured scripts can easily enter “infinite” loops. I have a feeling that this script is trying to make a HTTP connection to itself to verify the URL[/i]
I found these threads:
But neither of them resolves my issue. So any advice would be HUGELY appreciated.
