    Hi All!,

    I've just installed MAMP on my MBP using Tiger.

    I get this problem when I try to test the site. http://localhost/filename.html

    Failed to Connect

    Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost.

    Though the site seems valid, the browser was unable to establish a connection.

    * Could the site be temporarily unavailable? Try again later.
    * Are you unable to browse other sites? Check the computer's network connection.
    * Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.

    Have you started the web server? I haven't used MAMP, but that is the first thing to look into. You might also have to check the firewall to allow for a web service, although I think in that case you would get a 'connection refused' message.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
