Mihai turned around a detailed server move in less than 24 hours and not a single thing was wrong with the move.

Troubleshooting "Syck parser (line ..., column ...): syntax error" for Movable Type

Today I had to use a plugin for regenerating movable type basenames, but as soon as I uploaded it to the server, I've got this error:

Got an error: Error reading /path-here/cgi-bin/mt/plugins/EntrySetBasename/config.yaml: Syck parser (line 21, column 18): syntax error

At that point I had two alternatives: either debug the plugin and fix the problem, or switch from YAML::Sick to YAML::Tiny.

Since I've had so many items on my schedule, I preferred to go ahead with the quicker method and thus I've added the following configuration directive to my 'mt-config.cgi' file:

YAMLModule YAML::Tiny

Problem solved!
