Upgrading from version 6.x to version 6.x

  1. Download MAMP PRO from www.mamp.info.
  2. Double click on the MAMP_MAMP_PRO_6.xx.pkg file in your Downloads folder to start the installation process.
  3. The installer will rename your existing /Applications/MAMP to /Applications/MAMP_current_date. This folder can later be deleted. You may however keep it, so you can fall back to your original setup.
  4. Your existing htdocs folder will be moved to your new /Applications/MAMP folder.
  5. If there has been a change to the configuration of Apache, PHP, or MySQL (a directive was modified or a new one added) between versions of MAMP PRO and you have already made changes to your current configuration (resulting in the creation of a template file in ~/Library/application support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/templates), MAMP PRO will ask you to save off your old templates when you upgrade.

    MAMP PRO - Templates changed

    Save your template files. You can use these saved template files as a guide of your previous modifications. New (re)modifications need to be made through the MAMP PRO interface (File > Edit Templates), just as you had done previously in MAMP PRO.

  6. Confirm that all data has been transferred correctly before starting MAMP PRO.
  7. Your /Applications/MAMP_current_date folder can now be deleted. You may however keep it, so you can fall back to your original setup.
