I have also a problem hier. When I put the adress (port 8888) I get a message:
The virtual host was set up successfully.
If you can see this page, your new virtual host was set up successfully. Now, web contents can be added and this placeholder page1 should be replaced or deleted.
Server name: localhost
1 Files: index.php and MAMP-PRO-Logo.gif
but I don't know where should I put then the information thats on the website:
database name: wordpress
database host/server: localhost
database user: root
database password: root
where's the "famous" 5 min install?
