Another MT export struggle narrative:

Movable Type to WordPress: A migration slightly less painful than the Trail of Tears – Makeworthy Media

So here’s where I’m at. The Ex Ratione command-line script seemed like the way to go after noting that the in-MT export tool produced a consistent truncated output, cutting off at blog entry 1249.

However, my hosting service doesn’t provide shell access (grr) and running the script via cron produced an empty file, probably as a result of their security settings. Their support group was able to run it directly and it produced exported output. Yay!

Except the output was just the same as the output produced using MT’s native export tool. Boo.

So there’s more banging to do.
