MT and MAMP

Vote 0 Votes

I'm trying to get MT going but am blocked in two areas.

1. I can get the folders properly on the local testing server but can never run mt-wizard.cgi. Just says it can't be found on the server. I'm using MAMP Pro and am able to use it with several websites I work on but can't get past this point. I think it is something about MAMP being configured correctly. I see several postings when googling.

2. I also am confused about the database. I know how to set one up with MAMP. What do I name the DB? Can I use just any name?

I've read the online manuals and think I know what to do but still get blocked when running the wizard.

I use Dreamweaver.

I'm using a MacBook Pro which I do most of my website work on.

Thanks.
