Hi, This is my first post as I am very new to wordpress but very excited about the prospect of getting to know it! Yesterday I successfully downloaded wordpress onto my machine, was getting along great with it, building a site on my localhost, and getting to know it. Today when I open my browser and type in http://localhost instead of the wordpress login page I get an Apache page which says:
If you can see this, it means that the installation of the Apache web server software on this system was successful. You may now add content to this directory and replace this page.
I then tried http://localhost/wp-admin which took me to the login page I was after, I thought my problems were solved but once i'd logged in when I clicked the 'visit site' link instead of viewing my site it takes me to that same Apache page.
I'm sure i'm just forgetting to do something really simple but I cant work it out. I'm an absolute novice when it comes to mamp and MySQL and databases so it's probably just me being a pleb, but I'd be very grateful if anybody could help!!
