[resolved] installing jetpack on mamp localhost (5 posts)

    Hi. I'm learning wordpress and I've done a local install using mamp.

    I wanted to install the jetpack plug-in but can't finish installing the plug in because I can't connect to wordpress.com. I was able to search for and download the plug in through the admin on the localhost install so it's connecting to some things. But not wordpress.com.

    Will I have to omit this plug in and others that require a connection to wordpress on my localhost?

    When I get to the part:

    Your Jetpack is almost ready – A connection to WordPress.com is needed to enable features like Comments, Stats, Contact Forms, and Subscriptions. Connect now to get fueled up!

    I get this:

    Error Details: The Jetpack server was unable to communicate with your site [IXR -32300: transport error: http_request_failed couldn't connect to host]

    Hi kvn,

    I'm having the same problem. I found this post, which didn't work for me, but it might work for you ...

    Otherwise, I'm interested in any other solutions people have :)

    thanks Hrist,
    followed that tutorial but still cant connect which is funny because it's the same error message as in the tutorial.
    thanks for the suggestion.
