So far, so good. I wrote up my notes for installing WordPress on a DreamHost hosted website. I have a test blog up and running, and overall I have to say that WordPress compares very well with Movable Type.
I plan to migrate this blog’s content and templates over from MT later this week, to make sure WordPress really would be an acceptable solution. If not, I’ll check out Blosxom and PyBlosxom. Hopefully, I will be able to use some of the tutorials from the WordPress site on doing the migration and on redirecting URLs. No sense in starting over from ground zero with all the search engines.
