Support » Installing WordPress » 404 Not Found: The requested URL /wordpress was not found on this server.

  • Hello. I am trying to install WordPress on a local server and keep getting this message. I have a macbook pro and have MAMP installed. I downloaded WP and followed the installation guide. I have double checked all ports (apache set to 8888, my SQL to 8889), and I have created a WP database in phpmyadmin simply called “wordpress”. My root folder is set to users/username/sites/wordpress.

    Any help appreciated. Thank you. For reference, I have looked at the install guides on Codex and WP already and cannot figure this problem out.

    You said it already. The software is looking for /wordpress.

    It has to do with the document root that you set and the htaccess file that redirects / and if you have mapped a virtual domain. It’s a combination of things that you have to get all matching.
