Sometimes I feel like development on a PC is much easier than on Mac. My experience so far is that the Mac just throws stuff at you – mostly permissions but dealing with them is probably more painful for me as I am fairly new Mac user.
So I tried to install a fresh WP website and got a prompt that they couldn’t generate the wp-config.php file. Ive copied the code and manually placed the file on hard drive, just to finish the installation. Then, when tried to install some plugins got asked about the ftp details (look below image). As i am running my local development version and don’t have and FTP server installed I thought that there definitely is a way of installing everything without FTP server.
