Mac5 on Touch and BlackBerry

In 2006 I wrote about getting my first BlackBerry that enabled internet viewing. My current BlackBerry 8830 is brighter and crisper, but internet browsing is put to shame by the “free” iPod Touch we got with Kathy’s new MacBook Pro. The ability to scroll, pinch-zoom in/out, and navigate is amazing. (An iPod Touch is basically an iPhone without a camera or phone capability.)

Getting Movable Type To Use 755

Claire’s new entries in a new month would not display. Movable Type is storing entries in archive directories by month, and when creating a new directory in her blog, it was setting to 777. Since her banner uses php to randomly display photos, the server did not like running anything through the php parser in a wide open directory. It wants a minimum security of 755. I found an article that described adding the following to the mt.config file. Solved the problem.

HTMLPerms 0775

DBUmask 0022

HTMLUmask 0022

UploadUmask 0022

DirUmask 0022

The odd thing is other blogs were creating as 755 already, so not sure why Claire’s behaved differently.
