MAMP PRO is the commercial, professional grade version of the classic local server environment for MAMP. Designed for professional Web developers and programmers, MAMP Pro allows easy installation and administration of their development environment.
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 webEdition: 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.
With MAMP Pro, you can easily connect your local server with an existing Dynamic DNS provider, as for example dyndns.com. Making it very simple to quickly make the results of your work accessible externally for superiors and prospective customers. And because you can set up many virtual hosts, you can easily offer alternative configurations or suggestions. With MAMP Pro, no complicated editing of configuration files is necessary to set up a working test environment. Cleanly separated, several projects can be developed at the same time. To be able to represent as great of a variety of ISP’s as possible, PHP can be toggled at any time between Version 4 and 5 to guard against any possible incompatibilities. A staging server on your Mac is set up with MAMP Pro with a few mouse clicks, so that you can keep your customers and superiors up-to-date about the state of your projects at any time. The user interface of MAMP Pro allows Apache modules to be systematically enabled or deactivated. Thus you can perfectly emulate the server environment on which your project will later run, and guarantee the highest possible quality of your project. The MySQL database is a component of the MAMP, however it is much easier to configure with MAMP Pro. To increase the security of a Mac connected to the Internet, you can not only quite easily change the port where MySQL answers, but change of the root password or limit the access to the database server to local users. Should errors occur for SQL inquiries, with MAMP Pro you can also define the location for your error log to be saved, so that you will not have to search for it.
