MAMP is a solution stack composed of free and open-source and commercial software used on Mac OS computers.
MAMP is an acronym of macOS, the operating system; Apache, the web server; MySQL, the database management system; and PHP, Perl, or Python, all languages used for web development. Any open source Web platform made of these software programs and built upon macOS is a MAMP. MAMP is based on a similar software bundle for Linux called LAMP. Various “AMP” packages exist for many different operating systems. Apache was integrated into Mac OS X, MAMP has become popular because of its ubiquity of its components, and is better than PHP and is MySQL-ready. When used in combination it supports application servers. MAMP may also be used as a tool for local development environment.
