I've been using MAMP for years. Rarely had any issues. I'm currently running OSX 10.7.4. I just upgraded MAMP to v2.0.5 and bought/installed MAMP PRO... but I can't get it to work. I can still you MAMP (non-PRO), but I get a 500 error when I try the same local sites with MAMP PRO.
Here's what I've tried so far...
I've tried with both the MAMP port settings (Apache=8888 MySQL=8889 SSL=88890), and the default web settings (Apache=80 MySQL=3306 SSL=443). Neither works.
I've tried each of the following:
I've tried both user options (www/mysql & MyUser/MyUser).
In each case I get a 500 internal server error:
HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.
The documentation is very brief, so I'm not sure whether this looks correct for settings under the hosts tab:
Another clue, I CAN access files in the root directry:
/htdocs. I just placed a file with
phpinfo() and it worked! I think this tells me something, but I'm not sure what.
UPDATE For reasons that are ENTIRELY mysterious to me, I'm now getting a 403 Forbidden error, and only for one particular site in my /htdocs folder. I tried editing the httpd.conf with:
<Directory /> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride All </Directory>
Still no luck accessing the one site.
