Hi, sorry if this has been asked but I cant find it with the exact environment I am running. Its as follows:
Until now I had been doing WP and MAMP dev on 1 machine alone. No problems there. A friend is now going to be working on the same site as me and So he borught his imac, same as mine, and I bought a server mini so that we can both work off the same directory.
To move everything from my single user environment to the server where we can coloborate, do I need to upgrade to MAMP Pro? I have tried to run everything with regular mamp and am having some problems. Here is what was done.
Enabled file sharing and web services on mac server. Installed MAMP free. Moved entire DB folder from single user machine to db folder on server MAMP. Moved working file directory and pointed apache to it. Verfied all DB files tables and actual dbs themselves show up in myphpadmin, everything looks fine including user name et cetera.
Getting :error establishing a database connection" when I try to enter a website page from the MAMP localhost:8888 index page.
All my wp cfg files still use root/root "db_name" and localhost for the 4 main DB parameters.
So 1 how do I fix this and how should I best structure the working dirs. to use this way? Should I put everything in the server OS server webpages library, or create a new webpage. Create a new webpage requires a domain name and wont accept a file path. All kinds of problems with this. Would MAMP Pro just make this a breeze? Thanks in advance.
