downloading database into MAMP issues (3 posts)

    this is from WordPress.org http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_W ... e_Database

    To start the MAMP Apache and MySQL servers, simply click "Start Servers" from the main MAMP screen. Your MAMP servers have now been started.

    Once the MAMP servers start, the MAMP start page should open in your default web browser. If not, click on "Open start page" in the MAMP window. Once that's open, select phpMyAdmin from the webpage.

    Under "Create new database", enter in a database name such as "wordpress", and press "Create."
    ---------------------------
    Once I open phpMYADMIN there is no option to "Create new database" There is a tab for database but that is it.

    Can someone please advice me so I do not make a mistake?

    I posted on the forum on the MAMP support site a week ago and have not received a reply as of yet.

    If you click that "Databases" tab, there should be a field for creating a database, I think it should be the only form field on that tab.

    Ok so I took your advice and did that and the next step is this:
    Now it's time to download WordPress. Once you've downloaded and unzipped the WordPress download, open up the "wordpress" folder. Click and drag all of the files from the wordpress folder to your MAMP document root (I use /Users/USERNAME/Sites/wordpress/).

    What is the MAMP document root?
