[Giveaway] 10 MAMP PRO Licenses – Set Up Your Personal Web Server Locally With One-Click


If you’ve ever tried building a website from the ground up – which you probably have since you’re a reader of this site – then you know how much hassle it can be having to go back and forth between your web server and local files.

And don’t even get me started on debugging and testing… For instance, how can you make sure that your site will operate just fine on PHP 5.1 when your dev server is PHP 5.5? Do you just buy ten different web hosting plans to find out, or do you constantly nag the support team at your current host?

Obviously, having a local server installation is the best solution here, and that’s exactly where the giveaway we have for you today comes into play.

The tool is called MAMP PRO, and here’s what you get with one of the 10 licenses we’re giving away:

  • The PRO version of the tool (there’s also the free version), which is the one-click-solution for setting up your personal web server locally.
  • Multiple technologies supported: Apache, PHP, MySQL, Perl, Python, Web Start, and more.
  • One-click installers for WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, and other platforms.
  • Multiple virtual servers plus the Multi-PHP feature – allows you to check if your site works on different versions of PHP.
  • The ability to share your build via your local network to get feedback from coworkers. You can also use the dynamic DNS feature to make your server available on the web.

Basically, MAMP PRO is your solution for building and testing websites locally, so you can later on roll them out to their destination web hosts in a surprise-free way. The MAMP PRO guys really did a great job here. Also, there’s a quick video tutorial to get you up to speed with how to set everything up.

    It would be great if you could add support for Contao CMS

  2. Chad Mar 10, 2015, 6:00 pm

    I would love to win a copy. I use the regular version.

  3. Sam DeVore Mar 10, 2015, 7:04 pm

    I would like to see performance tools added

  4. Avirexavier Mar 10, 2015, 7:21 pm

    Mamp (free or pro), the best app for your Mac.

  5. Zach Mar 10, 2015, 7:31 pm

    I’m currently on WAMP but want to move to MAMP. Unfortunately, the lite version just isn’t enough. I would love to get the a pro license.

  6. Giuseppe Mar 10, 2015, 7:32 pm

    I would love to try the PRO version for my local environment

  7. Konstantin Mar 10, 2015, 7:34 pm

    MediaWiki would be nice.

  8. Nicholas Mar 10, 2015, 7:34 pm

    I use the regular version, and i’m curious to see what the full version is capable.

  9. Jake Mar 10, 2015, 7:36 pm

    Ugh I would love me some MAMP PRO for all my local dev.

  10. Lance Mar 10, 2015, 7:37 pm

    I’d like to see support for a flat file CMS, like Pico.

  11. Tyler Forest-Hauser Mar 10, 2015, 7:38 pm

    I’ve been using MAMP for a long time but boy oh boy would it be nice to use MAMP Pro.

  12. marco casadio Mar 10, 2015, 7:42 pm

    i really want to try the PRO version. thanks

  13. DDA Mar 10, 2015, 7:46 pm

    A one-click Ghost install would be awesome!

  14. Michael Doane Mar 10, 2015, 7:46 pm

    I’m happy with the WordPress Extra (It’s my go-to)… but Ghost.org and MoveableType support would be cool too.

  15. Jalen D Mar 10, 2015, 7:47 pm

    I am currently using MAMP, and would love to get MAMP Pro. The ability to use virtual hosts would really come in handy.

  16. Andreas P. Mar 10, 2015, 7:54 pm

    PRO version would be great. Thanks for the giveaway.

  17. egiova Mar 10, 2015, 7:58 pm

    Good solution, specially when you have several projects on different platforms to built, and you don’t want to struggle endlessly with configuration. Easier to maintain.

  18. Lucas Keiser Mar 10, 2015, 8:00 pm

    I loved using MAMP. Haven’t used it in a while but I was thinking about setting it up again. This would definitely tip the scales.

  19. Till Mar 10, 2015, 8:06 pm

    Docker Support would be incredibly awesome!

  20. amar Mar 10, 2015, 8:08 pm

    magento pls

  21. Sasha-Shae Mar 10, 2015, 8:10 pm

    Extra I’d love to see would probably be support for Ghost, or with all the rave SquareSpace has been getting lately, it would be nice to have something for that too maybe?

  22. shine Mar 10, 2015, 8:13 pm

    i like mamp. it is great tool, i’d like totry pro version

  23. Stuart Watton Mar 10, 2015, 8:16 pm

    I’d love to see Roundcube added as an Extra

  24. Tom Mein Mar 10, 2015, 8:29 pm

    Would be very interested to see ASP.NET added. Microsoft are moving to a situation where their apps will run on Android, so why not the reverse and add ASP to MAMP

  25. Alex Mar 10, 2015, 8:30 pm

    Adding Ghost install would be nice!

  26. Petr Chutny Mar 10, 2015, 8:32 pm

    I think that front-end designers might greatly appreciate the Perch CMS (http://grabaperch.com) to be included in MAMP Pro, since it’s a great solution for those who don’t want to get too deep into php/scripting and inner workings of wordpress and it’s plugins.

  27. Garry Mar 10, 2015, 8:34 pm

    MAMP is the most powerful local server tool. I use regular version and would like to try PRO version for my web developing business. And yeah, LiveStreet CMS would be a nice feature to add.

  28. Chris Osborne Mar 10, 2015, 8:36 pm

    Bootstrap or similar reponsive web design tool would be handy!

  29. Erik Chacon Mar 10, 2015, 8:43 pm

    I would love to use MAMP Pro with WordPress, I’m in the middle of the process to create a Blog site to my wife and I think it will be wonderful to win one pro-license

  30. Daniel Mar 10, 2015, 9:42 pm

    MAMP in the cloud?

  31. Robert Mar 10, 2015, 10:06 pm

    I’ve used the free version of MAMP to create a local install of WordPress and found it easy to use. Would be awesome to win a copy of the Pro version.

  32. Larsen Mar 10, 2015, 10:31 pm

    Looking forward to test

  33. Sam Mar 10, 2015, 11:11 pm

    I’m currently setting up my virtual servers manually on OSX. MAMP Pro would be awesome!

  34. Tristan Mar 10, 2015, 11:15 pm

    It’d be cool to see some integration for Craft CMS

  35. Caneco Mar 10, 2015, 11:16 pm

    You can say how many times you would like: “Vagrant” but, in my opinion, nothing is this easier to have a local server.

  36. Spiritfoxy Mar 10, 2015, 11:29 pm

    I would love to win a copy to use for all my local development

  37. Arturo Campos Mar 10, 2015, 11:33 pm

    Having Laravel and/or Symfony in MAMP would be awesome.

  38. OtherCoder Mar 10, 2015, 11:34 pm

    Please add more ecommerce script.

  39. Charlotte W Mar 10, 2015, 11:42 pm

    Ghost! That’d be nice.

  40. Alex Mar 11, 2015, 12:04 am

    Cool, i hope to be one of the lucky ones

  41. John Mar 11, 2015, 12:42 am

    Great idea for a giveaway!

  42. dboeger Mar 11, 2015, 1:44 am

    I’d like to see integration with github or bitbucket.

  43. Amber Mar 11, 2015, 2:21 am

    It might be neat to see a Ruby on Rails extra.

  44. Anastasiya Mar 11, 2015, 3:08 am

    bolt cms

  45. Jorge Perez Mar 11, 2015, 3:23 am

    It’d be awesome to have tiger CRM or similar for a 1 click install

  46. Les Mar 11, 2015, 3:27 am

    SIX MORE DAYS!? Sheesh… my demo is expiring TODAY! I just clicked on “Buy now” but I thought, let’s search for coupons. Then I thought, usually they post offers on twitter. Lo and behold! Indeed, a free giveaway. Sadly, I probably will buy it by then because I can’t hold off for 6 more days. Oh well…

  47. Louis Bullock Mar 11, 2015, 3:45 am

    MAMP has always been great to me, I couldn’t imagine a simpler workflow for my web development, it just works so well. To win the PRO version, boy that’d be fantastic. Fingers crossed!

  48. Louis Bullock Mar 11, 2015, 3:47 am

    If MAMP Pro could have an extra, perhaps it could be something like an offline Tumblr server or similar, or perhaps the ability to simulate poor internet connections or dial up, so that you could see if your website would still run the same, how it holds up.

    If there was the option to have speed tests built in too, that’d be awesome.

  49. vhick Mar 11, 2015, 4:20 am

    I currently use WAMP but the interface of MAMP is easy to navigate…

  50. leerxingzhi Mar 11, 2015, 5:00 am

    I’d like see integration with php frameworks, such as ci, yii, laravel and …

  51. nickbell Mar 11, 2015, 7:12 am

    mamp is a really good software and i would love to win a license

  52. rio Mar 11, 2015, 2:13 pm

    I want one

  53. Arun Mar 11, 2015, 2:39 pm

    You might want to add magento.

  54. Frank Mohnhaupt Mar 11, 2015, 2:44 pm

    i use mamp free version on my mac mini and it works great with a Joomla website and a personal Cloud !! :-)

  55. Lia Mar 11, 2015, 4:33 pm

    Would be nice to see the Ghost blogging platform.

  56. David Hofmann Mar 11, 2015, 4:53 pm

    It would be amazing to have some speed testing or simulating extra utility. Also support for different languages (ruby etc.).

  57. grinn57 Mar 11, 2015, 9:31 pm

    Opencart, please.

  58. Luiz Marques Mar 11, 2015, 11:04 pm

    Ruby on Rails would be a nice extra.

  59. Lambiris Mar 12, 2015, 12:31 am

    Moodle and Ghost would be great additions.

  60. Alexa Mar 12, 2015, 2:03 am

    i used mamp long time ago and it was a painfully experience… i could give a try again.

  61. Trisha Roberts Mar 12, 2015, 5:19 am

    I would love to get MAMP Pro, the ability to use virtual hosts would be really handy.

  62. Alif Mar 12, 2015, 9:17 am

    i want this

  63. kevin klein Mar 12, 2015, 10:06 am

    Ruby on Rails and Moodle would be great additions to the program

  64. imatteh Mar 12, 2015, 10:38 am

    I like mamp!

  65. Silviu Mar 12, 2015, 10:41 am

    Using the regular version.. Long story short it is awesome and extremely useful.

  66. ondo Mar 12, 2015, 10:47 am

    I’m using MAMP for decades it’s time to go PRO ;)

  67. Alexander Mar 12, 2015, 3:25 pm

    Very nice give away, want pro !

  68. akos Mar 12, 2015, 5:05 pm

    time to go pro !

  69. DobaKung Mar 12, 2015, 6:26 pm

    With its sleek interface and ease-of-use, MAMP is my best solution on OS X.

  70. Larson Mar 12, 2015, 8:11 pm

    Really curious about this ^.^

  71. Stefan de Graaf Mar 13, 2015, 1:57 am

    Would be cool if they cool add a easy way to quickly backup databases and config files

  72. Jenny Mar 13, 2015, 8:15 am

    Why not just focus on improving WordPress/Joomla/Drupal instead of adding little supported CMS that not many people use? But if we have to suggest one, how about Cake PHP? Also there’s a typo, it’s not “Worpress” (or, I hope it’s not :O) it’s “WordPress”.

  73. Shane Knuth Mar 13, 2015, 8:03 pm

    I use MAMP free a lot when building sites. MAMP Pro would be a welcome addition to my tools.

  74. David Hahn Mar 16, 2015, 3:45 am

    I’d like to see a sync option (locally with dropbox, or remotely with ftp)

  75. Usman Khalid Mar 16, 2015, 6:38 am

    Blogger Posting and management will be a good addon

  76. Gary Mar 17, 2015, 1:06 am

    Performance tools please, and Magento for good measure. Would love to be using Mamp Pro!

  77. Paolo Mar 17, 2015, 4:07 am

    Probably an easy migration from MAMP to MAMP PRO could be a good addon

  78. Pascal Mar 18, 2015, 10:35 am

    Using MAMP for local testing is just great, would love to win a MAMP PRO lisens :-)
