MAMP PRO for macOS and Windows
Unlimited number of hosts
With MAMP PRO you can create as many hosts as you want. Each host can be configured individually and thus adapted exactly to the target system. For example, choose if you need an Apache or NginX web server, which PHP version is needed, or if and which caching system is used. This allows you to work on your different projects in parallel without losing sight of the big picture.
In CGI mode, you can run each of your virtual hosts with its own PHP version. This allows you to test your projects with different PHP versions - without having to restart the servers. You can choose from a variety of PHP versions from PHP 5.4.x to PHP 7.2.x.
In module mode, you select a PHP version that will automatically run on all your hosts. This is useful, for example, if you want to check if your projects are running under a certain PHP version.
With the Cloud feature it is possible to copy all, or individual hosts to your dropbox. The root directory of the host and its databases are backed up. Now you can work on your projects on different computers without any problems. You can also use the cloud feature to back up individual or all hosts. Unlike the free MAMP, the cloud function is already included in MAMP PRO.
Built-in text editor
Whether you want to make a simple change to one of your projects, or start a completely new one: With MAMP PRO text editor you can just to do that, either locally or remotely on a server. The editor has all the modern features like auto-completion, syntax highlighting, etc.
Install Extras like, Joomla, Drupal, Grav, Media Wiki, phpBB, Opencart, WordPress, etc. with a few clicks.
An extra is a package of a web application or library that we have previously tested and configured under MAMP PRO. When you create a virtual host, all you need to do is select the desired extra and everything will be installed automatically. Extras can also be installed on existing hosts.
You want to keep your boss or a colleague up to date? This is now very easy via xip.io: Activate the corresponding option and click on the sharing button. Your e-mail program opens and the corresponding URL is automatically entered in a new e-mail. All the recipient has to do now is click on the link and the host you would like to share will automatically appear.
With MAMP PRO you can easily connect your local server to an existing dynamic DNS provider, such as no-ip.com. This makes it very easy for clients and interested parties to access the results of your work very quickly via the Internet. Once again, the possibility of setting up any number of virtual hosts is convincing in order to be able to offer alternative configurations or suggestions. We have additionally integrated the DNS-O-Matic service. Now you have a huge selection of Dyn-DNS service providers, many of which are free of charge.
