How do I deploy new page templates (Homepage.php, eg) on a Macintosh system running MAMP and SS?
I can't get the http://localhost/dev/build/?flush=1 command to work, updating the page type template as per tutorial 1 section 'Creating a new page'. I've tried using the port numbers of apache server and mySQL server (8888 and 8889 resp.) and get different results but none succeed in updating the page types in CMS.
With no port spec, I get:
Safari canâ€™t connect to the server.
Safari canâ€™t open the page â€œhttp://localhost/dev/build?flush=1â€ because Safari canâ€™t connect to the server â€œlocalhostâ€.
With localhost:8889 (mySQL) I get
a little downloaded text file that has some gobbledygook and then 'Bad Handshake'
with localhost:8888 (Apache) I get
The requested URL /dev/build was not found on this server.
Apache/2.0.59 (Unix) PHP/5.2.6 DAV/2 Server at localhost Port 888
Is there some other security setting I need to adjust perhaps?
I am not a developer or IT specialist, I come to this from graphics and comms side, but know my way around the tech side too. Any help appreciated, happy to provide more details as needed.
OS X 10.5.7 Leopard
