As a Movable Type Consultant, I would like to share with you some key characteristics your Web hosting should support:
LAMP is an acronym that stands for Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP.
The combination of these powerful open-source technologies is used to define the web server's environment where your site will be hosted.
In other words, your Web site should be hosted on a Linux server operating the Apache Web server, running PHP, and allowing you to develop a Movable Type-powered site with a MySQL database.
This option will allow you to develop your Web site in a secure environment (Linux), allowing many benefits, including URL rewriting and other advanced server options; Apache to speed up your Publishing Platform via PHP server-side "includes"; and the speed and security of a dynamic, updatable mySQL database.
For best results your server should run mySQL v4.x or newer.
Movable Type allows you to create thumbnails on the fly for all the images you would like to display with your articles. You have this option when you upload the image, or you could automatically generate it using a dedicated plugin.
This functionality, however, requires a plugin module called ImageMagick. To be operational in Movable Type, ImageMagick should be complemented with PerlMagick.
Unfortunately there are still some hosting providers that support pre-version 4.x of, or do not have ImageMagick installed.
3) Server Perfomance
Many hosting companies, even some of the big names, unfortunately do not share enough server resources with their customers. That is because or they have too much customers, oversell the server capacity or do not invest on top quality devices.
As a consequence the Movable Type Support Forums are full of hundreds and hundreds of support requests mentioning various problems with all sort of Errors, mainly Error 500.
Do your research seriously or apply for PRO IT Service's hosting package and we guarantee that you get your money back if you experience any problems hosting with us.
