I am having trouble configureing mamp and wordpress. i recently went through the lynda tutorial on this and set it up perfectly on my computer at work and am now stuck trying to set it up on my personal computer.
mamp installs fine and is pointed to the correct wordpress location but when i try to access the localhost http://localhost:8888/MAMP/?language=English it gives me the "oops google chrome could not find localhost:8888. In mamp the apache is set to this and im not sure where im going wrong. I followed these exact steps on my work computer running mavericks as well and had no problems.
any ideas of whats going wrong would be appreciated. went through a number of tutorials and forum posts but haven't found anything yet.
