I'm new to PHP and setting up local hosts. I installed MAMP on my Mac, and have been using it to experiment with Joomla and Drupal. Recently I added a site I'm working on in collaboration with another developer. He converted some basic HTML pages I made into PHP so the header and footer could be called globally. He placed these files on our host's server, and I downloaded them from that location. I have been unable to view this site on my local host. When I enter the address in my browser, a copy gets downloaded to my system. Does anyone know why this would happen? Here's what I've entered into the address bar:
http://localhost:8888/TAJ (TAJ is the site's root folder)
My Joomla and Drupal sites in that location are still working properly. I imagine this is something simple, but since I know very little about PHP I'm not sure what to do. Am I missing some database info or something? Thanks.
