Haven't done this in a while and it seems to have changed quite a bit. Freshly installed OS X 10.8.5, then XAMPP, the phonebook test XAMPP app doesn't work which I've never come across before in my years of using XAMPP on Windows and Mac... but I don't care, apparently the code for that demo isn't kept up to date... Anyway... I've also installed Piklist quite a few times to play around with it in different environments, and this is the first time in my memory (which sucks) that I'm being asked for a hostname, FTP username and FTP password (and connection type) to install the plugin in my WP installation. I don't have an FTP user/pass, so I left localhost (and FTP for Connection Type) and pressed "Proceed" and it just reloads that page.
What do I do to install Piklist right now.
