My MAMP Pro trial expired, and now my WordPress install isn't working, any ideas?

Questions:

I’ve recently downgraded from MAMP Pro to MAMP and noticed that my WordPress database is gone.

I found this tidbit from MAMP Pro’s forum, http://forum.mamp.info/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7416

MAMP PRO 1.7.2 is using this databse:
/Library/Application Support/living-e/MAMP PRO/db/mysql

MAMP PRO 1.7.2 is using this databse:
/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/db/mysql

So you can copy your database files of MAMP PRO to the MAMP database folder.
Stop servers first! Make Backups! Just copy, don’t move!

… And that’s what I did, but now when I navigate to the local homepage it brings me to the 5 Minute install page, which doesn’t make sense. After looking into the phpMyAdmin I noticed that the database “wordpress” exist now with the table names, but missing the content… any ideas?

Answers:

check your wp-config.php file – to be sure user,password and host are correct

go to http://localhost:8888/MAMP/ to see if your DB is installed & working

usually on mamp default user & pass are : root and host is localhost

Set your system clock to the last time your MAMP PRO was active and it will work again, back up your data
