i am trying to install wordpress on my mac locally and have followed all the instructions by installing through MAMP. the final instruction is confusing though. it reads:
"Lastly, we've got to run WordPress' famous 5-minute install. Visit your local site (localhost:port or localhost:port/wordpress), and enter the following information into the database setup form:
database name: wordpress
database host/server: localhost
database user: root
database password: root"
so what does it mean to visit my local site? is that a url? is it somewhere on my mac?
any help you can offer is appreciated.
