Pulling out my hair on this one.
Running MAMP on my local machine (MacBook Pro) and attempted to pull down a WP installation from a production environment this evening. Copied the DB over, updated the URI's in the DB, all the usual suspects.
When I open localhost:8888 in the browser I get the default Apache "It Works!" screen. However, if I redirect the browser to localhost:8888/wp-login.php it resolves fine and loads the login screen.
Wondered if it was a site issue, but attempted to redirect Apache to several other sites I have locally and the same issue occurred so it's definitely server related.
Moved the files to another computer (iMac) and there were no complications at all – site displays fine.
Curious, anyone have this issue before? Thoughts?
