Yah, I have a backup... I need to create another one for the content I
have uploaded today as well.
The main question I have is this:
When you create entries in the mt.cgi, where do they go, if not to your
public blog site? My MT config claims that it is putting content in the
/var/www/http/blogs/jgm (I am working from memory here)
but when I run "rebuild site", nothing new gets posted there. I shelled
in to marmot, did a search for files in my blog space that had been
recently modified, and found nothing! There is a disconnect between the
MT admin and public views. Puzzling. I guess I can just wipe the site
and start over, but I was really curious what went wrong. Perhaps I wil
start wading through the config files on the server later on...
