    Just getting started here with MAMP 2.0.5 and wordpress 3.3.1

    MAMP seems to be working. In MAMP created a new database in phpMyAdmin, set default Apache and MySQL ports

    I put the wordpress files in htdocs (applications>MAMP>htdocs)

    web sharing is off (Mac OS 10.7.2 by the way)

    I changed the WordPress file "wp-config-sample.php" with my database name username "root" and password "root" and changed the file name to "wp-config.php"

    I type "localhost" in the browser and see my subfolders, but where the wordpress files should be is blank. Also blank broser when point directly to a php file that I know is there.

    any help would be appreciated.
    thanks

    create a folder named "wordpress" in htdocs and put wordpress files in them.
    and browse http://localhost/wordpress

    if all setup is correct then your wordpress installation will work.

    Same deal. I type local host in the browser, I see the wordpress folder, and get a blank browser.

    I get the same when I try to type in specific .php files.
    using firefox 9.0.1
