    I am wanting to start a new WP site locally. I have an existing one, but the new one is not related to it in any way.
    What steps do I need to take? Do I need to install WP again, if so where?
    I have MAMP (mac) already installed and active.
    Thanks
    Marty

    Follow the same procedure, but make sure you choose a unique database name for the new site

    So do I need to install a new WP or can I just create the new mysql database in the phpmyadmin part of MAMP and that will allow me to have a new site? I am a bit rusty at this.

    you'll need to:

    - download a fresh copy of wp
    - create a new mysql database via phpmyadmin
    - create a new folder in the htdocs folder
    - unzip your download and put the wp files in the new folder
    - visit e.g. http://localhost:8888/mynewfolder to run the install
