Multi-PHP

Run different versions of PHP at once

MAMP Pro has always offered multiple versions of PHP. This was convenient if you had different projects using different versions of PHP, but required a restart of MAMP PRO when you wanted to change projects. If, for instance, you needed to work on a host which used a different version of PHP, you had to restart the servers and change the PHP version to work on that particular virtual host. With the new MAMP PRO you can configure your PHP versions on a per host basis using CGI Mode. Now you can conveniently switch between virtual hosts using different PHP versions on the fly.


Virtual Server

Set up any number of virtual servers

You can set up and test any number of virtual servers without the danger of affecting your live system. The local name resolution is performed by MAMP PRO. For each project, you can create a virtual host and conveniently test your programs in detail. Whether you create a page using a CMS, integrate a shopping-cart, or create a WordPress template - MAMP PRO is there to provide the perfect test environment. With unlimited server-hosts you can separate all your projects and make them accessible to your local network or even the internet. To simulate a very authentic environment, MAMP PRO can activate the local mail server, as well as the sending of emails via PHP.


Extras

Install Wordpress, Joomla, Drupal, etc with just one click

An Extra is a collection of files or library, which has been tested and configured by the MAMP PRO team. When setting up a new virtual host you can also choose and Extra which will automatically be installed. You can also install Extras on existing hosts. The selection of extras is always being updated and expanded.

Now you have a huge selection of Dyn-DNS service providers, many of which are free of charge.
