The abbreviation MAMP stands for Mac OS X, Apache, MySQL and PHP. With just a few clicks, you can install Apache, PHP and MySQL under Mac OS X. Frequently demanded, and not yet available in this form anywhere in the world, with The MAMP you install a complete server environment on your Mac OS X computer in a matter of seconds, whether MacBook or iMac. In the same way as similar packages from the Windows and Linux worlds, this program is free of charge as well.
The MAMP is very easily installed, as is typical for the Mac, without interfering with any Apache installation already activated under OS X. Apache, PHP and MySQL are installed without launching a script or changing any settings.
