WordPress 3.1.1 on OS X 10.3.9

Unfortunately bitnami, which is great by-the-way, requires OS X 10.4. I found out when I saw this error during installation:

httpd can't open library: /usr/lib/libbz2.1.0.dylib (No such file or directory, errno = 2)

So I turned to an old version of MAMP for PowerPC (OS X 10.3.9) and installed WordPress 3.1.1. Worked great until I tried http://binxbinx.local:8080/wordpress/ from another machine and I saw the unformatted text of the pages.

Anyway, all you have to do is go to your wordpress settings

and put your hostname in where there used to be localhost.
