In this screencast we're going to go through the process of installing MODx Revolution on MAMP to set up a sandbox or testing ground for learning and experimenting on MODx. The process I follow here is very similar to what you would do on Wampserver, XAMPP or any stack of Apache, MySQL, and PHP. I look forward to your feedback and questions.
