    Working on a site on localhost and MAMP. All working fine until I downloaded a new wordpress site, renamed it as its another site and stored in htdocs folder.

    Went back to other site and now get a 404 error. MAMP is still running, still pointing to correct wordpress folder just wont work?

    I have deleted other wordpress folder but no difference. All files are still there, database in phpmyadmin still there….just won’t load.

    Yes my internet is working 😉 and I have tried turning it off and on again.

    Please help

  • Have you read Installing WordPress Locally on Your Mac With MAMP? Maybe something was wrong with your installation.

    This is the guide I use but I had it running fine with one install, added a new install and suddenly its all gone pete tong. Gone back to where I was but no luck.

    The MAMP preferences did change but I changed them back.

    On phpmyadmin under wp_users the user_pass is a very long random password which is very different to the password I used in the database and the wp-config file. I have tried changing this to my chosen password and saved but makes no difference???

    I think you need to review Resetting_Your_Password.

    Thanks esmi but see above?

    I did. Please review the page at the link I posted above.

    I carried out these instructions in phpmyadmin but if I select MD5 then enter password and save it doesn’t save it? I have granted all permissions for the user

    Then there must be an issue with your database. You must enter the new password using MD5.

    Any bright ideas? I have tried setting table specific privileges for wp-users to no avail. Am I going to have to create a new database then import my tables?

    This has absolutely nothing to do with permissions for wp-users. You are, presumably, trying to edit this table as root, yes?

    No im editing it under my user I created

    Why? Just edit the table as root.

    I’m really sorry but you have lost me here.
    How do I do this?
    I created a database, created a user and installed wordpress which has all been working perfectly.
    If I click on privileges I have my user and root as a user, do I need to edit privileges on root?

    Root has full, god-like, privileges.

    When I click on wp_users in the table then browse as it says in the how-to I just have one option, the user I created. Is this right as I have no root here to edit?
