I am new to the Stellar network and would like to TEST Stellar's capabilities - via a standalone implementation (http://localhost:8000) of the 'STELLAR/QUICKSTART' on my MAC laptop.
The installation is up and running which reports that the HORIZON API (as per the Stellar Laboratory), POSTGRES & STELLAR CORE are available with NO ERRORS.
However, I cannot get the HORIZON UI (http://localhost:8000) to connect with the Stellar Core - to allow me to create an ACCOUNT and persist the details on my standalone Stellar implementation.
Has anyone done this successfully before, and what should I do/change to get it to work ?? Many Thanks!
