MySQL is More than Just Letters…

Yesterday I begged for help so I could set up MySQL with MT, and several people came to the rescue. Kristine wrote very detailed instructions and I suggested to her that they needed to be posted at ScriptyGoddess because they were so good. Thanks to going to the movie, I didn’t get stuff set up last night, but I will be tonight. Look out Trackback, here I come!

Several people have left comments asking why they should go to MySQL. Normally, I’m a “if it isn’t broke don’t fix it” kind of gal, but if you’ve ever had your Berkely DB get corrupted it’s a very frustrating break. Ben from MovableType was able to help me recover everything, but it was still a headache. So that is why I’ve been waiting for the MySQL version of MT – it will be more stable. Also, you can do things like export your templates using MySQL and MT. (I’d link to the post on the MT forums about it, but they posts have all moved around!) As time goes on, I’m sure you will see even more cool things that you can do with MySQL. Meanwhile, I’m going for the stability.
