Wordpress Templates using Dreamweaver
Posted 25 February 2012 - 01:24 AM
I downloaded and installed MAMP correctly and set up my database with no problems. I downloaded wordpress and then copied the files to HTDOCS but when trying to do the wordpress install at: http://localhoast/mo...dpress/wp-admin (video marker 3:50/8:05 )i get the error message "safari can't connect to server"
What am i doing wrong?
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Here's a link to the video:

Yes, I created the database using MAMP. I followed along with the instructor in the video exactly. After creating the database he says to open http://localhost/dat...dpress/wp-admin and installs wordpress from there. However, when I follow that link I get an error message from safari saying "can't connect to server" and that's where I'm stuck.
Thank you for you help.

You did not mention that you had edited the wp-config-sample.php file. You must add your database info there and then rename the file to wp-config.php
Eddie - i didn't edit anything. I followed the video instructor step by step. After creating the database he says to go to: http://localhost/dat...press/wp-admin. When I try and go there i get the error.
