Moving WordPress Site Within Localhost (MAMP) (1 post)

    First off, though I have worked with WordPress sites, I have never worked with databases and often just installed the WP sites locally on my localhost to the default root location through MAMP and WP's 5-minute installation. That said, I'm stuck trying to figure out how to move a WordPress site from its current localhost root location to a folder in the localhost. I have read a bunch of online tutorials on how to do it with MAMP, but they're all several years old and outdated compared to the updates of MAMP's software. I tried to install WordPress in a subdirectory folder in the localhost with no success because WP can't seem to find the database? What are the best procedures for this situation for when I have to do multiple WordPress sites on my localhost?
