    I get the window to insert my e-mail address. When I type it in, I get a message saying it is already installed.

    Your setup does not appear to have PHP enabled on the webserver.

    My site is hosted with our Internet provider, Verizon FIOS. It’s like a gimme with our Internet service.

    I thought by installing MAMP, it would allow PHP to be enabled. (Pardon my ignorance)

    Do I need to find a new host, like GoDaddy, where I registered my URL name in order to enable PHP, or am I missing an easy fix?

    I have no idea what “MAMP” is. Perhaps you should ask them how to enable PHP on the server?

    MAMP stands for Macintosh, Apache, MySQL, and PHP. MAMP is an application you can install on your Mac which allows you to have access to a local PHP server and MySQL server. Essentially, MAMP gives you all of the tools you need to run WordPress on your machine, for development and testing purposes. You can accomplish this in different ways, but the other ways aren’t nearly as simple (see MacOS_X_Local_Mirror for the long, manual version of installing PHP and MySQL on your Mac).

    This is a download from the WordPress site.

    Yes, I know what the acryonym means, in much the same way as LAMP or WAMP. But you speak of MAMP as if it’s a standalone program or something.

    Personally, I don’t use Macs, I use Linux (and Windows when I’m forced to).

    On Windows, I’m a fan of the XAMPP package, which is a simple standalone WAMP installation, and which does have functioning PHP.

    On Linux, installing PHP and MySql and Apache and setting them up takes one command at the command line and about 3 minutes to download and install them. It’s another command to activate the server as a default service. 🙂

    So my point is that because I don’t use Macs, I’m not entirely sure what the problem with your particular pre-made AMP package is, which is why I suggest you ask whoever it was that actually pre-made it.

    This is a download from the WordPress site.

    No, it is not. WordPress does not have any downloads like this available on this site.

    Thanks Otto42.

    It’s located in the Codex Resources, but you are correct, it is a link to the MAMP website.
