    Hi

    I hope someone can help.
    I have successfully installed WordPress onto my Mac Mini. It is being used as a web server, hosting a couple of websites already. They are being hosted within the www folder, using the 'Personal Web Sharing' function.

    I am able to work on/view my WordPress site locally using MAMP. The problem I am now having is trying to workout how I go from viewing my site locally to be able to view it via an existing sites URL. I want to be able to view the WordPress site via http://www.somedomain.com/blog. I have created a sub folder within the current site files titled 'blog'. This is now at http://www.somedomain.com/blog. I have dropped the files in. But what do I need to do to make it viewable? For example, do I need to amend the wp-config.php file? It is currently setup as:
    DB_NAME - blog, DB_USER - root, DB_PASSWORD - root, DB_HOST - localhost, DB_CHASET - utf8, DB_COLLATE - *blank*

    Also does the initial landing page to http://www.somedomain.com/blog need to be an html, for example?

    Thanks in advance
    Tom
