Work locally on a Mac

Post by johnfromgenoa » Wed Aug 24, 2011 3:26 pm

I would like to develop a Webyep system locally on a MAc. I have downloaded MAMP but cant make it work. Is there an idiots guide somewhere? Or better still is there a simpler way of displaying webyep locally?
Thanks John

There are loads of guides on the web. Just ask Google. :wink:

You can also put your WebYep folder into ~/Sites (~ is your home directory) and enable Web Sharing (Preferences --> Sharing).

Unfortunately this will not work out of the box, because php is disabled by default.
You could enable php if you uncomment the LoadModule php5_module in your http.conf, but even than I had some issues in the past, mostly because once in a while the WebYep data folder locked to chmod 755 (in the good old OSX 10.4 days).
