Edit Template:

MAMP PRO uses templates to create the necessary server config files. You can edit these templates from the menu item File > Edit template. Here, you have access to options which are not accessible from the MAMP PRO user interface.

A template file is created in C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Appsolute\MAMPPRO\templates when you make a change to one of your templates. There are separate templates for your Apache, Apache SSL, Nginx PHP, and MySQL configurations.

  • Apache (httpd.conf and httpd-ssl.conf)

    Open and edit your httd.conf template file here. Changes made to your template file will be reflected your real httpd.conf file. The httpd.conf file created from the template file and is located in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Appsolute\MAMPPRO\conf\. You can check this file to verify changes you are making in your template file are properly reflected.

  • Nginx (nginx.conf)

    Open and edit your nginx.conf template file here. Changes made to your template file will be reflected your real nginx.conf file. The nginx.conf file created from the template file and is located in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Appsolute\MAMPPRO\conf\.

  • PHP (php.ini)

    Open and edit your php.ini template file here. There are likely several versions of php available, each of them with their own template file. Changes made to your template file will be reflected your real php.ini file. The php.ini file created from the template file and is located in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Appsolute\MAMPPRO\conf\.
