Mac OS X Yosemite and MAMP Problems
If you just updated to Mac OS X Yosemite and MAMP stopped working for you, this tutorial will provide a very simple fix.
The problem is that after starting MAMP, the Apache Server won’t start.
Open up Finder in your Mac, then:
- Go (top menu)
- Go to Folder…
Type in /Applications/MAMP/Library/bin then click Go
Rename the envvars file to _envvars
Go back to your MAMP control panel and click the Start Servers button.
Voila – It’s Fixed
Now you can use MAMP as usual. Enjoy!
Is this still necessary? The default filename is now “envvars_”.
I haven’t checked on a new install of MAMP, but if it works for you, it works 🙂
Yes – It is necessary – I had to rename envvars_ to _envvars and MAMP worked for me.
Thank you! This is exactly what I needed.
Glad it helped, Hilary! 🙂
This worked perfectly for me! Thanks
Cheers Ryan 🙂
Thank you thank you thank you!
You’re welcome, gingerbbm! 🙂
This guideline is perfect. Its work for me.
Glad it worked, Joel! 🙂
OMG you saved me so much time! Thank you!!
I’ve been happily running MAMP 4.0.6, and updated to Yosemite and the Apache servers will no longer start. I tried changing envvars_ to _envvars, but sadly this doesn’t fix it for me. Ideas?
Do you have a fix for when Apache Server starts, but MySQL doesn’t? Everytime I’ve installed MAMP 4.0 it’s good for a day. The only fix I’ve found is to delete MAMP after each use.
