How to uploading media installed in MAMP


I’m a new user trying out Omeka S at home running on MAMP (while I wait for it to be installed at my university). I got it going and created some pages but when I try to upload Media from my hard drive I get “Omeka S encountered an error”. That’s it. Same if I try to use a YouTube link. Any advice welcome. I had none of these problems using the Sandbox.


The place to start would be to turn on error logging so that you get a more robust error message.
