Downloading MAMP

From: Installing and Running WordPress: MAMP

Video: Downloading MAMP

The first step in installing MAMP on your computer is getting the application itself. MAMP comes in two varieties, MAMP and MAMP PRO. MAMP is free. MAMP PRO has a license fee. When you download MAMP you get both options. You can choose whether you want to upgrade to MAMP Pro when you download it or later on. If you're setting up MAMP for personal use, stick with the free option. If you're going to use MAMP in a business or professional capacity, I encourage you to pay the license fee.

You get more features, and you also support open-source development in the process. In this course we're going to use the free version only. MAMP is available on the web as a simple download. You get it from mamp.info, and here you can see what that site looks like. From here, you can either just download MAMP, and like I said when you download it you get both the free and the premium option, or you can go and click the Buy now button, and this takes you directly to the page where you can buy the license for MAMP PRO.

I am going to download the package here. So I'll click Download now. Once the zip file is fully downloaded, you can open it on your computer and then unpack it. Now we have the package file for MAMP, and we're ready to install it on your computer. Like I said earlier in the course, MAMP is the environment in which WordPress will live. So now that you have MAMP downloaded, you also need to get WordPress on to your computer before we can continue.
