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

      After selecting this radio button, the selected cloud provider’s website will open in your default browser and you will be prompted to authorize the MAMP. This process is shown here as an example for Dropbox.

      1. Sign in to Dropbox.

        MAMP - Preferences - Cloud - Sign in to Dropbox

      2. You will be notified that MAMP wants to access your Dropbox account. Access will only be granted to the “Apps/MAMP” folder. Confirm this request by clicking the “Allow” button.

      3. The Dropbox website will attempt to redirect you back to MAMP. For security reasons, you will need to confirm this action in your browser. Confirming this message will take you back to the MAMP.

    • Off
      Use this option to disable the cloud feature.

  • Cloud Provider
    The cloud provider can be selected here. Currently only “Dropbox” is available.

  • Database
    Select the database to be connected to your host. This database will then be transferred to the cloud.

  • Encryption
    Use this feature to encrypt your data before transferring it to your cloud provider. You can encrypt all data before it is transferred to the cloud using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and an encryption key that you provide. The key is stored in the system’s keychain. You cannot set the encryption key while there is cloud activity.

    When you set encryption, your files are stored in the cloud with an .encryptedzip extension.

    To use this feature, select the Encrypt data before upload checkbox.
