MAMP for Mac

Create a local server environment.

What is MAMP for Mac

MAMP stands for: Mac, Apache, MySQL and PHP. With just a few mouse-clicks, you can install Apache, PHP and MySQL for OS X! It installs a local server environment in a matter of seconds on your OS X computer, be it PowerBook or iMac. Like similar packages from the Windows- and Linux-world, MAMP comes free of charge.

Similar to a Linux-distribution, MAMP is a combination of free software and thus it is offered free of charge. MAMP is released under the GNU General Public License and may thereby be distributed freely within the boundaries of this license. Please note: some of the included software is released using a different license. In these cases, the corresponding license applies.

MAMP was created primarily as a PHP development environment for Mac, and should therefore not be used as live Webserver for the Internet. In this case, we recommend that you use OS X server with the provided Apache or a Linux server.

Currently MAMP (PRO) 5 only offers to run Apache version 2.2.x and NOT Apache v 2.4+ . In my case that prevents me to work on latest development projects where .htaccess uses directive only available from Apache v 2.4 onward. Please check your requiements before you buy MAMP Pro 5. Otherwise would be the best local web dev stack for mac.

Just to warn people. I've been battling with MAMP for three days now trying to download my existing Wordpress self hosted site following various online tutorials and absolutely none have worked. Each time I have started from scratch including deleting MAMP and re-installing it, trying two different browsers and each time I get the ‘error establishing a database connection’ message. The issue I suspect is phpMyAdmin within MAMP. Each time I get the same two issues. 1/ Create a new local database - When entering log-in info phpMyAdmin won't allow me to leave the Host” field empty. It currently auto fills it with '%' , if I try and delete the %, it highlights with a red border. More importantly 2/ Again when on Add User I get a "A fatal JavaScript error has occurred....." Perhaps this isn't MAMPS fault, I don't know. At the moment I'm just going to give up and maybe try at some stage in the future. Way too frustrating and way too much time wasted. I need a drink. OS: 10.10.5 Browsers: Safari 9.0.2 and Firefox 40.0.3

I was under the impression that "the typical Mac fashion" was drag and drop from a DMG, not installer packages which many people distrust.

Overall, I have found MAMPS/MAMPS Pro to be a solid useable package. Thus 4 star's; however ... I switched from using MAMPS Pro for several years to AMPPS for the following reasons: 1) AMPPS has been easier to teach to my kids than MAMPS 2) In my view, MAMPS has some pieces related to the user configuration which are "more closed, less transparent" than AMPPS. AMPPS directly provides the raw config files. MAMPS layers a closed source GUI on various config files. 3) AMPPS directory structure is more like our live server directory structure than MAMPS. 4) AMPPS more convenient to use. In particular, the basic CPanel and Softaculous are particularly helpful in working with installing and maintaining open source web apps such as WordPress.
