MovableType blog publishing error

Tried to post a new blog entry today .. the *first* such post after moving the site to a new host (beginning of last month) .. but received the following error: mkdir /~radif2: Permission denied at lib/MT/FileMgr/Local.pm line 104.

Arrrgh! I use MovableType as my blogging software of choice. mkdir (I'm guessing) = make directory. The blog works fine for readers. I can also log into the blog's administrative interface, which is used to create new blog entries. And I can also SAVE DRAFTS fine.

continued

It's only when I try to PUBLISH new entries that I get the error. (So close, yet so far.)

I've already gone into the MySQL database and changed all references (that I could find) of the OLD server to that of the NEW server (~radif2).

Since I'm getting a Permission denied error, I'm guessing there is some place I need to enter the login info for the new server, but I could not find that info.

A review of the file Local.pm reveals nothing obvious. Gonna take another look at the MySQL database and see if I notice any more references to the old server (that need changing).

I miss being able to post blog entries .. so I can clean-up the home page. These kinds of problems are to be expected when moving the site to a new host.

In the end, it might be easier to install a new copy of MovableType .. altho I'd really rather not if I don't have to.
