Change PHP configuration for phpMyAdmin
If the default PHP configuration values for
post_max_size are too low for your needs when using phpMyAdmin, then you can easily change these values via MAMP PRO. To do this, first check which PHP version is used for the host “localhost”. For example, if this is the version “PHP 8.2.0”, then open the corresponding template of the php.ini file via the menu “File -> Open Template -> PHP (php.ini) -> 8.2.0”. Make the desired changes and close the editor window. You will be asked if you want to save the changes. Confirm this by clicking on the “Save” button. The servers and services will now be restarted automatically. After that phpMaAdmin is available on the host “localhost” with the changed PHP configuration.
