Hi! I'm new to cakephp. 3 days ago i downloaded the latest version of cakephp and made an instalation so i could folow the "blog" tutorial. My first installation worked fine intill. Everything showed on green in the index page of the root of my cakephp installation. Then I created the "Post.php" file inside the Model folder, and wrote the code indicated by the tutorial. Then Created the "PostsController.php" file and did the same, then created the folder "Posts" inside the "View" folder and inside that "Posts" folder created the file "Index.ctp" file. I got to my browser and tried to access "http://localhost:8888/cakephp/posts" but got the folowing two error messages:
- "Error: The view for PostsController::index() was not found." -"Error: Confirm you have created the file: /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/cakephp/app/View/Posts/index.ctp"

I've already start from the beginning for the fourth time now but can't get past this point. Please help.
Could this be a "mod_rewrite" issue? Could this be an issue do to the operational sistem i use (Mac os)?

I'm attatching a screenshot of the error messages i get with more detailed information here, just in case.

If you want to see more files i could attatch more.

Thanks in advanced,
                          Juan Carlos
