How to make Movable Type work properly on Dreamhost

  1. Turn on Dynamic Publishing for everything, with all options ON

That is all.

And I was just starting to consider other hosting options (Media Temple or Pair or something, anything that would let me publish new entries and let guest leave comments on my blog without returning 500 timeout errors) after receiving the last supercold response from Dreamhost support:

Hello,
Ok, I found the issue. It seems that your script is loading up over 90
megs worth of .. something directly into apache.
I’ve seen this with MT before, and we have no idea what on earth it’s
doing. We limit apache memory to 90 megs, as that’s a fairly large chunk
for one apache process.
You’ll need to consult movable type about that, as we don’t provide
support for custom scripting.

Now that’s what I call, “Can I get a ‘fuck you?'”
