Moving a live site to MAMP on a MAC
Help!!! I have a live site that has about 100 nodes and want to move it to MAMP on my Mac so that I can add what I have learned with Dorien's book. I have been using http://drupal.org/node/232460 but I am stuck. I can't modify the .htacess file in step 4 because I can't see it and it's a system file on the Mac.
How do I get around this? Are there alternatives to moving a site to a test site?
