I can't even get to the point of setting up an admin account on my q2a page.  I edited the config.php file with the 4 parameters set.  


I am using MAMP to set a q2a offline.

I placed all of the q2a files in the htdocs folder of my MAMP application.  When I launch: http://localhost:8888/          I get a blank screen.

I set up a database with a root user that has all privileges.  


Any help?

I doubt you still need this, but since I had the same problem and solved it myself, here it goes:

Although you are seeing no HTML, you are getting a 500 - Internal server error page. Theck your server logs.

I found this on my server error log. Your might be a different error:

[Sat Feb 16 10:57:10 2013] [error] [client] PHP Fatal error:  Call to undefined function mysql_connect() in /var/www/question2answer/qa-include/qa-db.php on line 66

A search on stackoverflow revealed this often happens when you first install a LAMP server and recommends you to reboot.

After a reboot, it worked :)
