    hi all,
    i've just installed MAMP on my mac and wanted to use it for my existing wordpress blog. does anyone know how to import existing wordpress into MAMP?
    i can easily create a new one, but importing seems to be much more complicated.

    thanks,

    Adam

    Either use Tools->Export at your live blog and Tools->Import->WordPress at your MAMP blog or use phpMyAdmin to backup your live database and restore that database to your MAMP system--see Backing_Up_Your_Database and Restoring_Your_Database_From_Backup.

    The problem I'm having with the Tools > Import method is"An Unexpected HTTP Error occurred during the API request" error. I'm running WordPress locally on my Mac, and just trying to import some dummy content and posts form an XML file. Any ideas?
