Support » Installing WordPress » Installation Information

    I am trying to install WP on my Mac. I have MAMP installed. I downloaded WP and opened the readme file. It says:

    “Open wp-admin/install.php in your browser. It will take you through the process to set up a wp-config.php file with your database connection details.”

    When I opened that file, there no instructions, only a PHP code file. What did I do wrong? Thanks.

    Sounds like PHP isn’t running on your local server. Check its documentation to see how you enable it.



    Thanks, it’s working now. I have installed WP locally.

    Ditch MAMP and run WordPress in your sites folder:

    I’am new to WordPress! I download the ZIP-File and need some Installing Help.

    I’am using Windows 10.0 and would like to install in Local on my PC to look at the Software and possibilities. Is it necessary to install als PHP ans Mysql?

    Sorry for this question but I could not find any answer for it.

    With best regards from Offenbach,
