MAMP could not find localhost:8888 (14 posts)

    Okay this is weird, I've used MAMP before and a local install and didn't have any issues, this time I do.

    Gone through this

    http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-locally-on-mac-using-mamp/

    But when it gets to the point of opening the Start page in MAMP I just get an error in my browsers(all of them) "could not find localhost:8888"

    I've tried a few other suggested ports that I found in the forums. I am only using the stock settings of MAMP now. I had heard that there could be a DNS problem, so I disconnected the WIFI and I don't even get the error, just a notice I'm not online.

    And my system and browsers are completely up to date.

    What OS are you running? 10.9?

    Also, you haven't changed your default hosts configuration (this is basically your system's default DNS) have you?

    this time I do.

    So are you saying that this particular MAMP installation is working with other WP (or other scripts) now, just not a new one? Or, is this a new MAMP install on another machine?

    bemdesign:
    Yes I am running 10.9.1

    I saw the replay in the e-mail so I went and checked the DNS entries were grayed out I put in OpenDns and still no change.

    2niner2:
    These are both fresh installs, the WP is straight from WP no mods or crazy bits.

    if it helps I am running on
    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220
    for my dns and the settings in mamp are stock.

    To aggravate things further I did a MAMP installation on a brand new iMac and it works. Made sure my setting matched and I still had no luck.

    and it works.

    I still had no luck

    OK, now I'm confused.

    Please clarify "it", which "works", and with what you are having no luck with "still" :)

    Sorry but what are you having trouble understanding?

    I installed MAMP on another machine(not mine hence the use of "brand new") and it works.

    Still doesn't work on my machine. Are you just a bot? you only seem to answer in questions.

    Still doesn't work on my machine.

    ... would have cleared things up straightaway. And I am far from a "bot" as I have been able to do this in 1:31 seconds, start to finish, with a new WP install on a default MAMP install. Sorry, but it just works for me, when I use all the default settings.

    Hi ultraorange,

    What about the MAMP services (Apache, PHP, MySQL)? Are them all running fine?
    Maybe your port 80/8888 is being used by another service?

    I had the same issue once, until I found out that Skype was using the port 80...

    Only port listing inside of Skype for incoming is 7908.

    Both lights are green. But I really have no way of checking to see if it is running properly since I can't get to the setup page.

    Will Skype occupy a port even when the program isn't running?

    No, it won't, but what does lsof | grep TCP return ?

    Ho and I found that too http://forum.mamp.info/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=6390#p16983.
    Not sure if it will work for you, but why not try right?

    Checked the web sharing and I have no sharing enabled. Also I disabled google drive and dropbox. Think that airdrop could be involved?
