    hi,

    try using /wordpress/ instead of /wordpress-5/

    do not type localhost:8888

    in your browser, just type in localhost and then / and then the folder name.

    @KrashKartMedia,
    why wouldn't him type the 8888 port, if he doen't mention having changed the default MAMP ports?

    for 10.6 or higher the default is usually set already. plus, it makes life easier having the default ports set.
