edited July 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Hi All, Is there anything similar to this ( on Vanilla? Thanks

    The hard part is installing PHP and MySQL, and those parts are detailed just fine in that tutorial; the rest is just a normal installation.

    I've installed MAMP. It duplicates Apache and PHP which are already installed with Tiger (PHP just needs to be enabled), but it's all contained in a single folder in Applications. No messy "what did I change, why doesn't this work?" If it gets messed up you can just trash the MAMP folder. Easy.

    Activate MAMP via Dashboard. Put the folder with Vanilla in MAMP/htdocs. Browse to "http://localhost:8888/forum" and you're golden!

    Edit: I think I had renamed my "Vanilla" folder to "forum". I also have Wordpress in htdocs/wordpress/(all the WordPress files).

    Hi Bergamot I have get to know the tutorial (for wordpress) from a commenter in this forum ( ) Quote= Comment: I tried something a bit different the other day. I installed PHP/MyQl on my MacBook Pro and also installed Vanilla. Vanilla is a simple yet elegant discussion group kind of deal but if you run it locally it can be your own personal note taking, organizing, utility of uber sexyness. Not to mention SQL dumps are easy and very small backups, and it can be moved/ported to work from any computer. Worth a mention i thought. And i understand from the felloe commenter that he actually "I used this tutorial for installing wordpress. I just skipped the wordpress part." For me, i just dont't know how-to "skipped the wordpress part" and what from there on.. I might just try the option by pbear, it seems simpler for me. Thanks Bergamot

    At the start, instead of downloading and installing wordpress, you download and install vanilla (Download and put vanilla in /Library/WebServer/Documents).
    At the end, instead of configuring wordpress, you configure vanilla (just go to http://localhost/vanilla/ and follow the instructions)
