Hello, I am installing Movable Type to my XAMPP environment.
Movable Type 6.0.5
Windows 7 x64
I have already installed two different versions of WordPress to my XAMPP.
When installing Movable Type, I ran into some issues. I put the mt-static folder at the root ,in htdocs, (renaming it movabletype), all the other files got moved to the cgi-bin, just outside of the htdocs root. I altered the first line of all the .cgi files to be #!C:/xampp/perl/bin/perl.exe while in my mt-config.cfi, I have the following:
##### MYSQL #####
When I go to the movable Type check page: http://localhost/cgi-bin/mt/mt-check.cgi I get this: The MT-Check report is disabled when Movable Type has a valid configuration file (mt-config.cgi) with a pop-up that says: perl.exe - System Error: The program can't start because LIBEAY32_.dll is missing from your computer.
When I go to the movable Type Install page: localhost/cgi-bin/mt/mt.cgi I get this: install_driver(mysql) failed: Attempt to reload DBD/mysql.pm aborted. Compilation failed in require, and a pop-up that says: The program can't start because libmysql_.dll is missing from your computer.
After searching with Google I found a few supposed answers: copy the libmysql.dll from mysql/lib to perl/bin whch did not work and another source said to copy the libmysql.dll to C:\xampp\perl\site\lib\auto\DBD\mysql but my file structure did not have any more folders in C:\xampp\perl\site\lib\ I created them and copied the .dll but that did nothing so i removed the /auto/DBD/mysql/libmysql.dll
Yikes! Any ideas?
Thanks for your time,
