I have a Macbook Mac OS X 10.4.11 and just downloaded Magento today. I am not a programmer and no nearly nothing about html. I’d just like to browse through the program and hopefully be able to put a website out when the initial release is put out later.

Could someone give me directions on what to do now? The decompressed folder is located on my desktop now and I don’t know where to go from there.

Thanks.

Just google it but look for privet server ( so you can see your web on your computer but nobody cant go on your computer, you just working locally) I don’t think you wont to host you own website. Or go on apple forum there is more then plenty treads how to do it.

Download the free version of MAMP:

It’s really easy to use and will allow you to install Magento locally on your Mac.
