Does AMPPS have an easy-to-use GUI interface like Mamp Pro where the user can quickly set up multiple virtual hosts, quickly set the various ports, quickly set the folder path to each virtual host, etc.? Or does AMPPS require fiddling with a multitude of config files, manually messing with the hosts file, etc.? Also, I run a well-established four-year-old WP blog with hundreds of pages of blog entries with one of my virtual hosts running Mamp Pro. Would it be easy to transfer the blog to a AMPPS setup without losing any of the data? Also, doe AMPPS use its own Apache, mySQL and PHP installations, or is AMPPS simply a GUI wrapper for OS X's built-in Apache, mySQL and PHP installations? Is AMPPS currently fully compatible with the El Capitan Golden Master? Clear answers to these questions is key in determining whether or not I should even consider a switch from Mamp Pro to AMPPS. Thanks in advance to anyone who may respond.

I really can't understand why AMPPS get so few downloads compared to MAMP PRO. Till last year I used MAMP which is free. Then I bought MAMP PRO via MacUpdate but found out it was unusable unless I constantly work with an adminaccount. I asked for support but never got any reaction. Then out of frustration I quit using MAMP, looked for a replacement and started using AMPPS. AMPPS is a delight, with a good forum and very active and helpfull support. IMHO AMPPS should be the default choice for a localhost development app and certainly all who uses MAMP and MAMP PRO should switch to it. Best of all: it's free!

I installed v.2.1 to prepare my WordPress site. All fine. But as soon as I wanted to update AMPPS to a higher version, now 2.4, one sees this is a free program with no good support. I Googled, read the forum etc., but is is impossible to get 2.4 running without loosing your files. I made complete backups, replaced maps and files thousands of times. Like for example this page says: http://www.softaculous.com/board/index.php?tid=5123 Nothing works though. There's no proper manual. On the forum you are in all kinds of highly technical stuff in no time once you want something simple as updating your software. I'm completely f*cked up by the lack of good information and normal procedures. Horrible software unless you're a developer. Bye AMPPS.

AMPPS 2.4 is out. --> http://www.softaculous.com/board/index.php?tid=5402&title=Ampps_2.4 Would note that AMPPS Support has already provided an answer for two issues that some users have reported. 1. PHP Scripts/phpMyAdmin do not work. 2. AMPPS Home i.e http://localhost/ampps gives a blank page. --> http://www.softaculous.com/board/index.php?tid=5404&tpg=2&title=Can%27t_access_AMPPS_Home#p19708
