Designed specifically for macOS, it offers a comprehensive suite of development services and tools, ranging from Web Servers and databases to development languages, mail servers, and queue services.

Key Features
  • Multiple PHP Instances: ServBay supports multi-instance running, allowing you to run multiple versions of PHP simultaneously. You can allocate different versions to different hosts for swift switching and version-specific hosting.
