MAMP – Can I build more than one website on it?

  • I currently use MAMP for designing a website. A friend of mine has requested a redesign of her current website in WordPress. I’d rather do it offline as I don’t have much time to do it these days and dont want to disrupt the current site. Can you do more than one website offline on MAMP and if so, how?

    Yes – just install WP in different sub-dirs off your main web root. I’m currently running at least 3 different sites/installs on my local server.

    Thank you. I already have WordPress installed through MAMP via..

    /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/wordpress

    How would I create sub-directory without upsetting whats already offline?

    Install the second site in /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/wp2?

    Just did that. I’ve downloaded the template I want to use, so do I need to start new database? Also is there a help forum for MAMP?

    do I need to start new database?

    I normally do but you don’t have to. You an re-use the same database as long as you give the tables in the new install a different prefix via wp-config.php

    Also is there a help forum for MAMP?

    There will be some general MAMP forums somewhere.
