Choosing the right MAMP edition
From the MAMP web site, we can download and install the MAMP edition which matches the Mac OS X version. The following versions are available:
- MAMP & MAMP PRO 24.* (Latest version is 18.104.22.168) is suitable for Mac OS X 10.6.6+ (including Mac OS X 10.810+ (beta releases are not supported).
- MAMP & MAMP PRO 13.* (Latest version is 22.214.171.124) is suitable for Mac OS X 10.4+.6.8+ (PHP 7 needs Mac OS X 10.8+).
It's also possible to download additional PHP versions for MAMP PRO 2.1.4.
MAMP is free software distributed under GNU license. MAMP PRO is a paid version which includes additional features. MAMP can be used stand-alone without MAMP PRO.
In this tutorial, we will use the latest the MAMP 2.1.4 version. Process is the same for MAMP 3.* and MAMP 4.* versions.
