My file structure is:
I am using MAMP and MAMP Points to this folder as my 'server root'.
Everything inside and including my web root has 777 permissions.
Inside this folder are three items:
I have a MySQL database:
I have pointed the db.php file to my server, with 'root' as the password.
My index.php file in my public folder points to
../craft which reroutes to
/app/index.php (a file that does exist in that location).
The most positive result I can get when surfing to
localhost/public/index.php is a message that reads as below...
Page not found
What’s worse, a hilarious 404 page can’t be found either.
With any other permissions I cannot access the folder because I'm not allowed (oops message).
And with any other mapping in the index file I receive a message:
File not found
