MAMP PRO

Version: 2.0 || Release Date: 2011-08-01 || License: Commercial with demo (USD 59) Developer: appsolute GmbH | App Owner: appsolute

Macintosh, Apache, MySQL and PHP.

MAMP PRO is the commercial, professional grade version of the classic local server environment for Mac OS X: MAMP. Designed for professional web developers and programmers, MAMP PRO allows easy installation and administration of their development environment under Mac OS X.

As a professional web developer you have to test your programs in detail. In addition, you need a highly configurable developing environment with all the components also used by most ISPs: Apache, MySQL and PHP in the latest stable versions. No matter whether you want to test your latest Ajax creation, or realize a new page with a Content Management System (CMS): MAMP PRO supports you during the tests of your developments.

You can set up any number of servers to carry out tests without danger for your live system. Besides, the local name resolution is performed by MAMP PRO. To simulate a very authentic environment, the MAMP PRO also switches on the local mail server, so that dispatching mails by PHP scripts is possible.

Yes, unfortunately this program turned into abandonware.

I found the virtual host management stuff quite useful.

MAMP Pro seems to have turned into abandonware. I also recently discovered a HUGE system speedup after disabling the autostart server.

Leopard actually has a really well organized Apache installation. After installing mysql from mac ports, everything is set up nice and clean, and it runs much much faster than MAMP.

XAMPP is not as good as MAMP Pro. Been using it for a while and really like its simplicity.

I wish they'd update it to act more like a normal mac os x application (enable the close button to hide the window). Also, its lame that they hard coded all their paths to /Application/MAMP so you can move it where you want.

But overall its a nice interface and has been very useful for me as a PHP hater who needs to host an occasional application locally every once in a while.

Indeed, whoever is thinking of actually buying this please dont, just download the free and equally functional software from

It's amazing that someone dares to ask $49 for a wrapper around a free product, but hey, you can always try...
