    Hi, I hope someone can help me.
    I installed MAMP and wanted to play with wordpress in local host first. Since I already had an existing account with wordpress, I went to the setting and changed both the WordPress address (URL) and Site address (URL) to http://localhost:8888 and saved the changes. Apparently, the local host is not working and now I can't access my page. I would appreciate it if someone could please let me know what I did wrong and what I can do so I can access my account again.

    Thank you.

    Change the urls back. See Changing_The_Site_URL.

    just drag the wordpress folder into htdocs and then run the install. wordpress will do everything else for you. do not change anything on your live wordpress site. the only reason to do this is when you are using SSL certificates.
