I want to visit my localhost that is being served by mamp on my iPad to do some testing. All the places I looked online say just to visit ip:8888.

This results in Safari showing a "server stopped responding" error. Am I missing something? I have web sharing turned on as well, could that interfere?

Can you access the localhost:8888 just fine from your Mac? – slhck Mar 12 '12 at 16:41
@slhck yep no problem, and I can even access the ip version from virtual box windows xp – Anders Mar 12 '12 at 17:28

I get the same problem from time to time. I can workaround it by turning web sharing off, rebooting my Mac, and then turning web sharing back on. Then I'm able to access my MAMP server from ip:8888. It's not ideal but it works.
