    Hi - I'm trying to install MAMP and get WordPress up and running. I am following the instructions on the wordpress codex's instructions for setting up MAMP, and I'm up to Step 3.

    But when I click on "phpMyAdmin" in the browser (Firefox, if that matters, 10.0), I get the following message:

    Error

    MySQL said: Documentation
    #2002 - The server is not responding (or the local MySQL server's socket is not correctly configured)

    Any suggestions on what I need to do? I have not changed any of the default settings under preferences.

    Thanks!
