I turn to you cause I have a major problem that I can overcome myself and the MAMP site seems to be down http://www.mamp.info/. When I start the MAMP and it opens the start page it just tels me that: Forbidden You don't have permission to access /MAMP/ on this server. Apache/2.0.59 (Unix) PHP/5.2.3 DAV/2 Server at localhost Port 8888 I run WordPress 2.8 on it with ~three years old MacBook Pro with Tiger (10.4.11) I can open the start page of my WP projects. But when I'm trying to navigate further in the site is gives me: Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Here's some error logs. If someone more knowledgeable could understund these better. From apache_errol_log: [Thu Jun 25 15:26:15 2009] [error] [client ::1] mod_rewrite: maximum number of internal redirects reached. Assuming configuration error. Use 'RewriteOptions MaxRedirects' to increase the limit if neccessary., referer: http://localhost:8888/traveller/ From mysql_error_log: 090625 15:23:13 mysqld started 090625 15:23:15 [Warning] You have forced lower_case_table_names to 0 through a command-line option, even though your file system '/Applications/MAMP/db/mysql/' is case insensitive. This means that you can corrupt a MyISAM table by accessing it with different cases. You should consider changing lower_case_table_names to 1 or 2 090625 15:23:15 [Warning] One can only use the --user switch if running as root Everything has worked really fine for now almost two years I've uded MAMP.

Hope I provided enough info All help is tremendously appreciated! Thanks!
