I hit a little snag today while trying to connect to MAMP using the OS X Terminal. I must admit I’m very new to the command line, so this may be obvious to many but it wasn’t to me.
This was throwing an error telling me that port 22 wasn’t available. I know that out of the box MAMP uses port 8888 for apache, so I added that port into the SSH command.
ssh root@localhost -p 8889
That did the trick! Hopefully it saves some time for other command line newbies like me out there.
