I am following a Lynda.com course to be trained on Wordpress and how to install and configure MAMP and WordPress. Everything has run smoothly until now, however, I have difficulties with finding the setup page for WP. The course tells me to write: "http://localhost/wp-admin/setup-config.php" but nothing happens. As I am a beginner, any clear guidance would be helpful. Many thanks in advance!

  • "nothing happens"...something has to happen. Do you get an error, white screen, etc? Are you sure you have your server running? What happens when go to just localhost? Sep 19, 2019 at 19:48
  • Thank you for your comment. The link leads me to Wordpress support page (forum) where a user shared a similar issue.

If you have default configuration for Mamp, URL must contains the port number. http://localhost:8888/
