My changes to the configuration files are gone when I restart the servers

All configuration files (httpd.conf, nginx.conf, php.ini, my.cnf, …) are recreated when the servers are started. They are based on templates. If you want to make changes to the configuration files, you need to make those changes in the templates.

You can access the templates from the MAMP PRO menu: “File > Open Template”.

Please note that errors in the templates can cause the servers to stop starting.
