    hi i'm doing the installation on mac:

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress_Locally_on_Your_Mac_With_MAMP

    but cannot do this part, i couldnt find where the database setup is, perhaps its changed? quite sure i've done everything before correctly:

    Lastly, we've got to run WordPress' famous 5-minute install. Visit your local site (localhost:port or localhost:port/wordpress), and enter the following information into the database setup form:

    database name: wordpress
    database host/server: localhost
    database user: root
    database password: root
    Once that's complete, enter a blog name and email address, and you're ready to use WordPress on your Mac.

    I've done the same thing and I'm lost here as the instruction is either wrong or left out steps. I don't know up nothing works.
    I to got to the database to fill out the form. No form, so I put the info in wp-config but did nothing for me. Can't make any kind of connection to the localhost. I used the names and directories in the instruction.
    The end result is nothing absolutely nothing. It sure would be nice if these 'super techs' would leave a link to contact them when they leave us hanging like this.

    As per the Forum Welcome, please post your own topic. Your problem - despite any similarity in symptoms - is likely to be completely different.

    Well, any way I went back and tried again. The key to completing the install is when a page of text pops up with a link for help, take it. You will get the form to fill out and complete the install of WordPress and everything then works.
