I've been attempting unsuccessfully to install MT following these instructions . This page was recommended to me & suits my install needs: I too am installing locally on OS X Snow Leopard.
I set-up as per instructed but when I try to access mt-check.cgi I get: `The requested URL /~******/cgi-bin/mt-check.cgi was not found on this server`. That is indeed the path where mt-check is & although not mentioned in the Miss Beau's docs I did a chmod 755 on files/directories that required it so that rules that one out.
If anybody could help, I'd be extremely grateful. MT 5.1.2, perl 5.14.2, MySQL 5.1.59 & OS X 10.6.8 (both perl & MySQL are compiled from source x86_64 & are in /usr/local/).
