MAMP PRO allows you to transfer the data (files, folders, mapped databases) of your hosts to the cloud. All you need is an account with one of the supported cloud providers. There is no need to install any additional software.

Please note that your data will not be automatically synchronized. Transferring data to the cloud or from the cloud to your local Mac is done manually. Use either the options of the Cloud Tab of the respective host or the corresponding options of the context menu of the Hosts Table.

MAMP PRO - Cloud

When data is being transferred from your local Mac to the Cloud or from the Cloud to your local Mac, the elephant icon in the menu bar turns green, a transfer icon appears next to the “Cloud” entry in the sidebar, and you can see a status indicator in the “Current activity status” area on the Cloud tab of the corresponding host.

  • Cloud Provider
    Select one of the supported cloud providers. The following options are available:

    • Dropbox
    • OneDrive

    After selecting the cloud provider, the website of the selected cloud provider will open in your default browser and you will be asked to authorize MAMP PRO. This process is shown here as an example for Dropbox.

    1. The first step is to log in to Dropbox.

      MAMP PRO - Cloud - Sign in to Dropbox

    2. In the second step you will be informed that MAMP PRO wants to access your Dropbox account. Access will only be granted to the “Apps/MAMP PRO” folder. Confirm this request by clicking the “Allow” button.

      MAMP PRO - Cloud - Authorize MAMP PRO

    3. In the last step, the Dropbox website will try to redirect you back to MAMP PRO. For security reasons, you will need to confirm this action in your browser. Confirming this message will take you back to MAMP PRO.

  • Use encryption
    Use this feature to encrypt your data before it is transferred 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. Previously saved hosts will retain their .zip, unencrypted extension until they are uploaded to the cloud again.

    • Set global encryption key
      MAMP PRO - Cloud - Set global encryption key

      • New Key
        Enter the encryption key to be used for all hosts and cloud services. This key must be a minimum of 16 characters and a maximum of 32 characters.

      • Verify.
        Re-enter your encryption key here for verification.

      • Create text file with key on desktop.
        If you check this box, a text file containing the encryption key will be created on your Desktop when you set the encryption key. The file name will be as follows: “MAMP PRO Cloud Encryption Key DATE TIME.txt”.

      • Load from file….
        Here you can load the encryption key from a previously saved text file.

      • Cancel
        Clicking this button will cancel the action and close the dialog.

      • Set
        Click this button to set the encryption key. This button is only active if the specified encryption key meets the requirements and the verification is successful.

  • Prevent sleep during cloud activity
    When there is cloud activity, MAMP PRO can prevent your computer from going to sleep. After all cloud activity is finished, MAMP PRO will no longer block sleep.


  • Cloud log file path.
    The path to your cloud log file. Your cloud activity log is located in “/Applications/MAMP/logs/cloud.log”.
