Those of us with Movable Type blogs should heed Stephen Green’s lesson: Keep an eye on your available disk space on your host. Do not exceed your allocation or you will experience serious problems.

Ironically, I found that out the hard way my first day with MT, because I had purchased too small a plan and exceeded my allocation IMMEDIATELY. No fun.

    I ran into problems because my hosting had a limit on the number of files you could have. I started getting all sorts of script errors. Thankfully they lifted the restriction on the number of files you can have.
