MAMP - Preferences - Cloud

  • Cloud

    • On
      Activate this radio button to enable the cloud function.

      After activation this radio button, the website of the selected cloud provider will open in your default browser and you will be asked to authorize MAMP. We show this process here as an example for Dropbox.

      1. The first step is to sign in to Dropbox.

        MAMP - Preferences - Cloud - Sign in to Dropbox

      2. In the second step you are informed that MAMP wants to access your Dropbox account. Access is only granted for the “Apps/MAMP.” folder. Confirm this request by clicking the “Allow” button.

        MAMP - Preferences - Cloud - Authorize MAMP PRO

      3. In the last step the Dropbox website wants to guide you back to MAMP. For security reasons you must confirm this action in your browser. By confirming this message you return to MAMP.

        MAMP - Preferences - Cloud - Open MAMP PRO

    • Off
      Activate this radio button to disable the cloud function.

  • Cloud provider
    The cloud provider can be selected here. At the moment only “Dropbox” is available here.

  • Database
    Select the database that should be linked to your host. This database is then transferred to the cloud.

  • Encryption
    Use this feature to encrypt your data before moving it to your cloud provider. You can encrypt all data before transferring it to the cloud, using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and an encryption key you provide. The key will be stored in the systems keychain. You cannot set the encryption key if there is cloud activity.

    When you set encryption your files will be stored in the cloud with a .encryptedzip extension.

    To use this feature activate the checkbox “Encrypt data before upload”.

    • Set encryption key

    MAMP - Preferences - Cloud - Set encryption key

    • New Key
      Enter the encryption key to be used for all cloud services here. This key must be at least 16 characters long and may not be longer than 32 characters.

    • Verify
      Enter your encryption key again here for verification.

    • Create text file with key on the desktop
      If you activate this checkbox, a text file containing the encryption key will be created on your desktop when you set the encryption key. The file name has the following form: “MAMP Cloud Encryption Key DATE TIME.txt”.

    • Load from file…
      Here you have the possibility to load the encryption key from a previously saved text file.

    • Cancel
      Clicking on this button cancels the action and the dialog is closed.

    • Set
      By clicking on this button you set the encryption key you specified. This button is only active if the specified encryption key meets the requirements and the verification is successful.

  • Data in the cloud

    • Delete now
      By clicking this button, you can remove data stored in the cloud from the cloud. Your local data will not be affected.
