This method will not work on MacOS 10.5 due to problems with mysql. The in-built webserver in Tiger was a little trouble some too.

A method to quickly get things up and running would be to use a free, all in one, webserver packages such as MAMP or XAMPP.

1) Download MAMP (free) from, .

2) Copy MAMP to your Applications folder,

3) Open the MAMP application (this starts the webserver software on your system),

4) Add a textpattern database using phpmyadmin (http://localhost:8888/MAMP/),

5) Download the latest version of Textpattern and place it in the htdocs folder inside the MAMP folder (rename the textpattern folder txp e.g. /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/txp)

6) Take your browser to the folder, http://localhost:8888/txp

7) Complete the installation of textpattern in the normal way
