Apache server

I have installed MAMP and am following the instructions to set up a dynamic site. However, when I reset the ports to Apache 80 and MySQL 3306 the Apache server light remains red (even when I click on "Start Servers" and enter my password). Both server lights are green when the ports are set to their defaults. Any ideas what's going on?

Make sure you do not have the Apache server that is built into the Mac OS turned on, if it is, the MAMP Apache server will conflict.


Go to the System Preferences and click on sharing. Make sure the Web Sharing option is not checked.

Next question...localhost

So now the servers are on, how do I access the html files? Should I be able to type localhost...and a path to the files in the htdocs and get them to show up on my browser? what path do I use? I get this message:
Not Found
The requested URL /applications/MAMP/htdocs/ was not found on this server.
Apache/2.0.63 (Unix) PHP/5.2.11 DAV/2 Server at localhost Port 80

What should I be doing?

files under /applications/MAMP/htdocs/ map to the web address:
localhost


if you have created a file at /applications/MAMP/htdocs/test.php

the address to access that file in the browser is:
test.php
