So I'll just let you guys know what I've done so far.
In my htdocs I moved the wordpress folder into there and I renamed it Vingoe
I had installed MAMP and it did not automatically create the wp-config.php file. So what I did was I downloaded wrangler and made a copy of the wp-config.sample.php and renamed it wp-config.php.
I opened the file and in the
Database I put Vingoe
user I put root
password I put root
and host I put local
I have not created any passwords or users and the only passwords that I'm aware of at the moment are the default passwords that are in the sql server that show root and root as both user and password.
When I try to open wordpress by typing local in my browser it say's
Error establishing a database connection
I'm clearly doing something wrong and since I'm not really sure what I"m doing, I figured I might as well tell you guys what I've done so far to see if you might be able to make sense of what I'm trying to figure out. :)
Anyway thanks for the posts and I look forward to learning what I'm doing wrong to fix it.
