hi macminiosx, i tried to install your plugin, but it didn’t work … here’s what i did: uploaded the unzipped directory to /plugins, changed permissions on retweetmaker.cgi to 755, but as soon as i tried to log on to my MT installation (using 4.32, by the way), i could not open /mt.cgi - i was immediately referred to /mt-upgrade.cgi, which i had, of course, deleted. any ideas?

PS here is an english translation of macminiosx’s plugin page:

PPS: i have Digest::SHA1 (version 2.11) installed.

(ups, the above URL broke, this should work better: )

hi macminiosx, okay, i see, i need mt-upgrade.cgi to upgrade the database for the PostTwiOAuth-plugin. (i usually delete mt-upgrade.cgi for security reasons.)

here’s the link to the google-translated doc including the upgrade-screens:

thanx & cheers from germany!

Hi Aaron,

You need to check it Terms and Conditions.

You will get permission to access /download_files/.

Thanks macminiosx. But, after installing the plugin, my blog back end broke. I use fastcgi instead of regular cgi for my scripts. So mt.cgi = mt.fcgi

I installed the plugin, updated the database and rebooted…

Problems: 1.) After installing the plugin which updates the DB, when I try to login I have to log in twice. Once via mt.cgi and then I have to log in a second time via mt.fcgi. 2.) Whenever I try to go into a tab in the back-end or write a posting, I get redirected somewhere else! However if I change the script URL in the address bar to from .fcgi to .cgi, I will get the proper page. 3.) When I write a new post and I try to upload a picture the dialog box to select the file is replaced with an iframe of the previous page I visited!

I just deleted the plugin and rebooted the server and everything is fine now. Anyone using FastCGI, be warned!
