I decided to try to upgrade from MT 3.35 to MT 4. What a colossal waste of time and energy so far.
1. MT 4 has decided that it can't find the mt-static directory if I try to do a clean install. I've tried moving the directory around, all the permissions look good, I can browse into the directory.
2. MT 4 has decided that the username and password that work for the 3.35 version of the blog won't work for MT 4 if I try to upgrade. I even logged out and logged back in on 3.35 to make sure I was using the right one.
3. MT 4 faults when I try to do the password recovery to see what MT thinks the password ought to be "Can't call method "password" on an undefined value at lib/MT/App/CMS.pm line 1825."
I'm stuck. What a waste.
