New MAMP PRO Installation

  1. Download MAMP PRO from
  2. Double-click the MAMP_MAMP_PRO_4.X.X.exe file in your downloads folder.
  3. The Windows Installer will guide you through the installation process.

Install Location

MAMP and MAMP PRO can be installed on any standard Windows drive such as C:, D:, E:, etc. For simplicity, we recommend installing in the default directory (C:\MAMP). We strongly advise against installing MAMP and MAMP PRO in a system folder, because the MAMP servers (Apache, MySQL, Nginx) require write permissions for the “log”, “configuration”, “htdocs” and “databases” folders. These cannot be granted by the Windows security concept if MAMP and MAMP PRO have been installed in the Program Files, Windows, User or other system folder. Changing User Account Control (UAC), Windows Defender, and Work Privileges settings is not a recommended way to maintain system security.

By default, MAMP/MAMP PRO is installed in your C:\MAMP and C:\MAMP PRO folders.


Apple Bonjour

By default, Apple Bonjour is installed when you install MAMP PRO. If you choose not to install Apple Bonjour, you will not be able to access your hosts from the MAMP Viewer.


Windows Defender

You may receive a warning from Windows Defender while installing MAMP PRO. This is standard firewall behavior for Windows applications running as servers. You can “Allow access” to private networks and public networks depending on your implementation needs. You can change your Windows Firewall permissions later if necessary.
