PHP development on Mac OS X

A new version of MAMP, containing the latest updates of its components, is available for download.

MAMP (Macintosh, Apache, Mysql and PHP) is an excelent environment if you’re planning to do some PHP development on your Mac. As they state on the MAMP website, it should therefore not be used as Live Webserver for the Internet.

Included software & libraries

  • Apache Version: 2.0.55
  • MySQL Version: 4.1.12
  • PHP Version: 4.4.2 & 5.1.2
  • eAccelerator: 0.9.4-rc1
  • Zend Optimizer: 2.6.0
  • phpMyAdmin 2.7.0-pl2
  • SQLite Version: 2.8.16
  • SQLiteManager Version: 1.1.3
  • Freetype Version: 2.1.9
  • t1lib Version: 5.1.0
  • curl Version: 7.14.0
  • jpeg Version: 6b
  • libpng Version: 1.2.5
  • gd Version: 2.0.28

I use MAMP primarily to test or modify WordPress upgrades, themes or plugins on my local machine before installing them on my webserver. The installation, administration and removal of MAMP is pretty straightforward – a highly recommended package!
