  • Resolved mgkoller


    I was looking to change one of my WordPress installs using this method,
    I edited the wp-login.php & wp-config.php inside the Mamp > htdocs > “test” wordpress folder.
    It was a “test” site so I didn’t care if it broke anything.

    Now ALL my folder’s inside Mamp > htdocs redirect from “localhost:8888” to “localhost”. How do I fix this? I never touched the other folders so I’m hesitant to do any php fixes in there.
    Here’s a screenshot of one of the sites I never touched, General Settings
    You can see that the WordPress Address (URL) & Site Address (URL) are correct.

    Also I can still access “http://localhost:8888/wp-admin/” but when I visit the site outside the dashboard it redirects to “localhost”

    Please let me know if I need to clarify anything and if there are any fixes to this problem. Thank you!

  • When I try to access phpMYAdmin I get this error

    phpMyAdmin – Error

    Cannot start session without errors, please check errors given in your PHP and/or webserver log file and configure your PHP installation properly.


    Cleared out my cookies and everything is working.

    So every time I run Mamp and view phpMyAdmin I get the
    “phpMyAdmin – Error”
    I delete my cookies and PhpMyAdmin works. I shouldn’t have to delete my browser cookies every time I want to run Mamp, anyone else experiencing this problem?
