Support » Localhost Installs » WordPress "not found" using MAMP

  • Resolved Rob Cubbon


    I can’t get WordPress to install locally on MAMP. Can anyone help?

    I sadly uninstalled and AppZapped MAMP and reinstalled it. Now I can’t get WordPress to install. I can make a DB on PHPMyAdmin but I get “not found” when I try the WordPress install. 

    I can’t get the PHP info? line to work either.

    How do you troubleshoot MAMP?

  • More info:

    MAMP seems fine. I can open the Start page, I can do the PHPinfo page, I can create a database in PHPMyAdmin. 

    But if I create a index.html with “hello” in it and put it into MAMP/htdocs/index.html I get: “The requested URL /MAMP/htdocs/ was not found on this server.”

    Similarly WordPress doesn’t work.

    I preferences for MAMP I have:
    Apache port: 8888; MySQL port: 8889
    Apache: /Applications/MAMP/htdocs

    and the URL is localhost:8888/MAMP/htdocs


    Stupid me. The localhost URL is http://localhost:8888 not localhost:8888/MAMP/htdocs
