So I have MAC and I'm trying to use WordPress. I've dowloaded MAMP, I've created a new database called "wordpress". I've done everything. I put in the link http://localhost:8888/wordpress to access wordpress and nothing happened, just a 404 Error message. Then I tried switching the last 8 in there to a 9 and then a download popped up called wordpress, and then when I clicked open it opened in TextEdit as a bunch of gibberish. I've spent the last few days trying to figure out how to get this to work with no success. Please help! I don't know if I've done anything wrong before, I'm sort of not very computer smart, but I followed the directions as best I could. Here's the link I followed:
Did I do something wrong? Is there something I'm not doing? Please help me!
