  • Installed WordPress where?

    Do you have a webserver running on ‘localhost’– aka, the computer you are using when you type “http://localhost/” into the browser URL bar?

    Yes,MAMP. I set everything up and had worpress up and looking at the new site. I closed it and can’t find any way to open it again. I did have it open but don’t know how when the email came in with your post and I clicked on the url to get to the forum.

    On doing that iOS closed all the pages I had open in Safari and opened a page on the forum so now I’m trying to figure out how to get back to my wordpress site.

    I did see somewhere that the port number had been changed.

    So now I find it with http://localhost:8888

    That problem is solved so now to find out why Safari keeps disappearing

    Thanks for replying by the way.

    Browsers assume port 80, standard for http, unless told otherwise, but you can run a web server on just about any port you want. 8888 and 8080 are common alternative ports.

    Good luck with Safari.
