OSX Lion Server & WordPress (1 post)

    Greetings,

    I am absolutely new to the WordPress game, I used to be using iWeb from Apple but since they are discontinuing iWeb Hosting I am in the process of converting my old iWeb site to WordPress.

    I have OSX Lion Server installed on my MacPro. I already have MAMP & WordPress installed and they are running under my 'localhost:8888" my goal is to use my MacPro as the actual public live server. I have my gateway set up so if you type in my IP address you see the test page of OSX Lion Server, and not the WordPress page. Currently OSX server is configured to look in ~/Library/Server/Web/Data/Sites/Default

    I added ~/Applications/MAMP/htdocs/AnimeFunTV to the list of websites however I can not delete the default location so I still see the OSX Lion Server test page regardless.

    From my understanding is that the current set up I have with MAMP and WordPress is that its is only 'local' or only myself is the person who can view the WP page. I have been searching around the forums but I can not seem to find any help on having my Mac and OSX as the live public server. I apologize if this topic as come up before, its just so overwhelming to click through each search and read up on every post and it dose not answer what I'm looking for.

    I appreciate any help possible.
