I am trying to install WordPress locally on my Mac using MAMP. The instruction says:
Now it’s time to download WordPress. Once you’ve downloaded and unzipped the WordPress download, open up the “wordpress” folder. Click and drag all of the files from the wordpress folder to your MAMP document root (I use /Users/USERNAME/Sites/wordpress/).
Lastly, we’ve got to run WordPress’ famous 5-minute install. Visit your local site (localhost:port or localhost:port/wordpress), and enter the following information into the database setup form:
database name: wordpress
database host/server: localhost
database user: root
database password: root
Once that’s complete, enter a blog name and email address, and you’re ready to use WordPress on your Mac.
I don’t understand what “Visit your local site…..” means. Can you help please?
