Hi, thank you for reading my post. As a complete beginner with little understanding of servers and coding, I’ve spent the last weeks trying to find a clear step by step tutorial for doing the seemingly simple task of running several WordPress installs on a local machine with OSX via MAMP or MAMP Pro to allow offline editing of more than one Blog. Then, after editing, the files are supposed to be uploaded to a Webhost instead of working online and then backing up the files. I do realize that some variables depend on the Webhost’s nature.
I see tons of posts in all kinds of forums asking for this information and they all end with fights, the advice to go and ask somewhere else or at best a vague speculation by someone who either never used WordPress or never used MAMP.
So my question is, 1. Am I allowed to ask this here or is the topic not WordPress-related enough?
2. Has anyone here actually done this and set up MAMP or MAMP Pro with more than one WordPress install and would you be willing to show beginners how to do it? If so, I have some more specific questions.
Thank you for reading!
