I recently tried to enable dynamic publishing for my archive pages. I use nearlyfreespeech.net as my host, and the publishing path there differs from the "work" path that must be used for dynamic php generation. (The regular publishing path, which works fine in all the perl scripts, is /home/public. The path needed for PHP scripts is /f2/sitename/public.)
I tried hacking a little in lib/MT/CMS/Blog.pm and managed to get past the open_basedir mischief, but now I just have a helpfully obtuse error page, styled nicely using my blog's design:
"Page Not Found
An error occurs."
Clearly I have missed something. I have no idea how mt.php generates these pages, and investigating is getting me a lot deeper into this than I was hoping. Any help from experienced MT coders would be appreciated.
