MAMP- Apache, PHP, mySQL on Mac OSX

Posted on February 2, 2016 in SoftwareTop of the PopsSoftware

I talked in a recent post about WampServer, I’d like to mention the Mac OSX equivalent, namely MAMP. According to their site MAMP installs a local server environment in a matter of seconds on your Mac or Windows computer. Personally, I need this software solution to run local copies of my web sites on the collection of Mac’s I have.

MAMP comes in two flavours: -

  1. Mamp Free – a One-click-solution for setting up your personal webserver.
  2. Mamp Pro - Configure an unlimited number of virtual hosts, DynDNS, email…

Once again MAMP is really simple to install and once this is done copying across your web server files will have your web site running locally in no time. You can use the admin page pictured below to access myPhpadmin and administer mySQL.
