while my self-hosted WP sites are perfectly running online, I’m now trying to have a local install in order to pimp my theme with Dreamweaver.
Setup: Mac, 10.6.8, MAMP running.
I followed the installation procedure as shown on https://www.adobe.com/devnet/dreamweaver/articles/dw_wordpress_pt2.html
and double checked with the installation guide at wp.org.
MAMP Servers both running, with standard ports 80 / 3306 as recommended on the Adobe site.
WP files copied to MAMP/htdocs/
Database created, user with privileges created
running http://localhost/wp-admin/install.php leads to:
“There doesn’t seem to be a wp-config.php file.”
creating a wp-config.php file according to http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php (both with localhost and localhost:80) leads to
“Error establishing a database connection”
What can I do now?
Thanks in advance, C.
