Not a developer? Go to


New installation guides for Apple and Microsoft environments

Getting up and running with Movable Type just got easier! We recently published several step by step guides for some commonly encountered server setups.

OSX users

Many developers use Mac computers and can benefit from setting up a local copy of a Movable Type installation for development purposes. Working locally, as opposed to working on a remote server, is often faster and more convenient, and you don’t even need to be online. Never again will you have to lose a minute of productivity due to not having Internet access on the airplane or during a brownout!

To get started, see Installing on OSX Mavericks.

Microsoft users

We also have some goodies for our Microsoft based customers. For system administrators looking to deploy on Microsoft IIS or to Microsoft Azure, please see these new documents:
