My WordPress Basics Notes

Since the forum seems to only be set up for questions, I figured I'd add my notes this way. That way someone else who runs into the same issues has a resource with the answers.

My WordPress Basics Notes

Installing WordPress Locally

ports: When setting up WordPress, if port 80 is in use, and you've assigned MAMP to use port 81, edit the file named wp-admin/includes/network.php and change $has_ports, array( ':80', ':443' ) to $has_ports, array( ':81', ':443' ).

Managing Media in WordPress

file size: When uploading media, if you get the message "video-file.m4v exceeds the maximum upload size for this site.", edit the file named MAMP/conf/php7.2.1/php.ini (assuming you're using php 7.2.1) and change 'upload_max_filesize = 2M' to the size you prefer.
