Upgraded MovableType 3 to 4

Finally I finished transition from MovableType 3 to 4. This is a test post form my new blogging platform. It was really easy to upgrade. Just followed these steps.

  1. Back up entire directories
  2. Back up a database
  3. Upload MT4
  4. Change permissions
  5. Overwrite mt-config.cgi from my MT3

That’s it! If you use plugins, need to copy them too. I had a problem about templates mapping but was solved soon.

Now I have to fix templates to use a global templates feature. Hope to get a more productive way to maintenance blogs.
