    • Open Template
      MAMP PRO uses templates to create the necessary server config files. You can edit these templates from the menu item “File > Open Template”. Here, you have access to options which are not accessible from the MAMP PRO user interface.

      A template file is created in “~/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/templates” when you make a change to one of your templates. There are separate templates for your Apache, Apache SSL, Nginx, PHP and MySQL configurations. If you have not made any changes to your templates, your “~/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/templates” directory will be empty.

      Changes are reflected in your real configuration files after your servers are restarted.

      Note: Errors in the templates files can cause servers not to start. You should edit these templates only if you are familiar with the exact syntax and meaning of the options.

      • Apache (httpd.conf and httpd-ssl.conf)
        Here you can edit the templates of the Apache web server configuration files. File configuration files created based on these templates are located in the directory “/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/conf”. You can check the contents of these files to see if your changes have been reflected in them.

      • Nginx (nginx.conf)

      • PHP (php.ini)
        Open and edit your “php.ini” template file here. There are likely several versions of PHP available, each of them with their own template file. Changes made to your template file will be reflected your real “php.ini” file. The “php.ini” file created from the template file and is located in “/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/conf”.

      • MySQL (my.cnf)
        Open and edit your “my.cnf” template file here. There are likely several versions of MySQL available, each of them with their own template file.
