  • I get to 2:38 using MAMP, and then when i put in localhost/”my site name” I get nothing. The 1.6 pack is unpacked in the htdocs folder. Any suggestions?

  • @poliplokos1 Welcome to Joomla 🙂 When I first started learning it I never realised it was going to end up becoming my career! I make £30k a year from this puppy 😛

  • I follow the tutorial but got an error “Could not connect to the database. Connector returned number: Unable to connect to the Database: Could not connect to MySQL.

    Someone Pls find a solution for this.

  • @novamary i have the same problem sometimes, but right now i tried to fix it, created a diffrent mysql database and tried to connect it, but now it only shows an error that my database doesnt exist and i CANT EVEN OPEN MY WEBSITE, cant even go to my admin board to change the database, nothing! So im reinstalling joomla =\

  • Guys I suggest you use WAMP if your a windows user because it allows you to do more and does not have any vital restrictions.
