Web Hosting Getting Started Guide 126
Note: If you have already activated Movable Type using the tools in your Web Hosting Control
Panel, you do not need to activate again to create new blogs.
To add Movable Type:
Go to the Create & Update tab of your Web Hosting Control Panel and click the
"Activate a Movable Type blog" link.
In step 1, choose a user name and password for your Movable Type blog. (Note that
your user name is case sensitive; USER and user, for example, are considered
different names.) You ll use this information to sign in to your Movable Type
administration page. Be sure to choose a unique name and password; you should not
use your Yahoo! ID and password.
Enter a password hint and email address. In the event that you
forget your password
you ll use the password hint (which functions much like a second password) to notify
Movable Type that you need to reset your password; a temporary new password will
be sent to the email address you specify here. Please note that you must choose an
email address that matches your domain, such as firstname.lastname@example.org.
In step 2, you can decide if you want your blog to be your web site
make your blog your home page, click the corresponding checkbox. If you d prefer not
to make your blog your home page, leave the checkbox unselected.
Important: If you have already created a home page for your site, please be aware
that if you select this option, your blog will replace your current home page. If you d
like to preserve your current home page, or link from your home page to your blog,
you should not select this option.
