I have MAMP installed on my Mac with a local WordPress install. Everything is working as it should. I can access my design using localhost:8888 in my browser. So far, so good. I have been tinkering around with a theme to modify it locally, just as a tutorial for my personal use. Now that I am finished with this experiment, I wish to start fresh with a clean install of WordPress to try some different things without adding to my already revised theme.
My question is this: Can I work on multiple WordPress installs locally using MAMP? Is it even necessary to work on multiple installs in order to start fresh to play around with modifying the original WP theme? Instead of working on multiple installs should I just trash all of my WordPress files and install a fresh version to start over?
Sorry to sound so confused. I'm new to this and I'm just not understanding how a theme designer goes about working on new themes locally with an already designed theme residing on the computer accessed via MAMP.
Does my question even make sense?
Thanks in advance for any help.
