Can't get Mamp to work. (3 posts)

    I am trying to follow the instructions to use WordPress locally with the help of Mamp. I go through the process of installing mamp, creating a directory, using the preferences to locate the root folder, and installing the wordpress files into that root folder. What fails is trying to access this folder. I type in the localhost:8888 into Firefox and it gives me a error code. Any suggestions?

    What error do you receive?

    The step where I fail is in accessing wordpress. The instructions say that in the browser (firefox in my case) I should type into the url line "localhost:8888" or perhaps "localhost:8888/(name of folder where wordpress files are installed)" Doing this simply gets me a "Not Found" message, as in "The requested URL was not found on this sever."
