Install WordPress on OS X Mavericks 10.9


If you want to get WordPress 3.8 quickly installed on your OS X machine for development or just to learn the software you can install all the necessary components including Apache, PHP, MySQL, phpMyAdmin and WordPress in one foul swoop without launching the Terminal. This type of install works best if you don’t use Apple’s built-in web sharing software, are new to web development or just want to safely look under the hood.
Super fast and super easy from Bitnami that puts all the required software in one easy installation. This tutorial covers up to OS X Mavericks 10.9 and earlier.

phpmyadmin homepage
The default home for your phpMyAdmin is – the user is ‘root’ and the password is what you set earlier.
You don’t need to go here unless you want to – the database that WordPress needs has already been created and is in use, it is named ‘bitnami_wordpress’

phpmyadmin home page
On login to phpmyadmin you have access to the backend MySQL databases

bitnami application folder location and files
All the files and software needed to make the installation are all filed in/Applications/wordpress-3.8-0 with the most important being  ’manager-osx’ if something isn’t working check here to see if your websharing and database tools are running, which are Apache and MySQL – start the servers if required.

To Remove the Bitnami Stack and WordPress Installation

Run the /Applications/wordpress-3.8-0/uninstall application
Thats it nice and easy WordPress installation.
