    I've tried to install wordpressmu+buddypress locally on may mac...
    I saw a step-by-step video... actually is quite easy, but in the end i couldn't change my hosts file...
    I downloaded mamp, installed, changed the preferences (like the video says)
    Installed wordpressmu and buddypress in my sites folder
    I did all the processes from the video, but at the end my hosts file didn't appear like the file in the video...
    When I type mate etc/hosts in Terminal, TextMate opens the file but the file is empty... I couldn't change to localhost.domain
    Does anyone can help me?
