Install vanilla on a localhost using MAMP on MAC

edited February 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

I would like to try some new theme for my forum, but I don't won't to do it online.

Is it possible to do it on a locahost with MAMP ?



  • You can install vanilla on your localhost using MAMP, yes.

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

  • Ok.

    And what do I have to fill when it is asked the database details ?

  • Create a database for your vanillaforum in PHPMyAdmin
    Then fill in the database name during the setup of vanillaforum
    The MySQL username / password are probably in the MAMP documentation. By default the MySQL username is "root", but you might want to create a new MySQL username.

    It goes beyond the scope of this forum to help you with that though :-)

    • Create MySQL Username
    • Create MySQL DataBase in PHPMyAdmin
    • Set up the forum

    @Carlo_13 & @UnderDog : Just as a side note, I can recommend Sequel Pro as MySQL-Administration tool on Mac OS X. I prefer it much over PHPMyAdmin.

    +1 for Sequel Pro recommendation.
