Offline Web Development Made Easy

Category:  Web Development

One of the annoying things about developing for the web on a PC is having to install all the necessary components that turn the computer on your desk into a offline server capable of parsing code and database queries. All of the development can be done online, of course, but it’s a time consuming game of upload and download, and when you’re dealing with live data, it’s really not recommended.

In the good ol’ days of development on the PC, one was forced to track down the latest development versions of Apache, MySQL, and PHP, and install them. It was no easy task and not for the faint of heart. For the casual web developer or HTML junkie, it just wasn’t worth it. (There may have been an easier way to do it, but I wasn’t aware of it.)

And then came the switch to Mac. It turns out that Macs already come pre-installed with Apache, MySQL, and PHP, so there is no download necessary. All that is required is the setup. And like the PC, the setup is still not for the faint of heart…unless you use MAMP, that is. MAMP stands for: Macintosh, Apache, Mysql and PHP, and with just a few mouse-clicks, it does all the installation for you!

According to the MAMP website,

    MAMP is installed in the typical Mac fashion: very easily. MAMP will not compromise any existing Apache installation already running with your OS X. You can install Apache, PHP and MySQL without starting a script or having to change any configuration files!

    Furthermore, if MAMP is no longer needed, it is sufficient to delete the MAMP folder and everything returns to its original status (i.e. MAMP does not modify any of the “normal” OS X).

Aside from the extreme ease of installation (and it’s truly the simplest way that I’ve discovered), one of the nice features of MAMP is the Dashboard widget that allows you to stop and start your server with the click of a button (I used to have to create my own desktop shortcuts to accomplish the same thing on a PC).

For those of you who are using a Mac and would like to create and play with your own Wordpress blog on your local machine, I highly recommend the article, Installing Wordpress Locally Using MAMP by Michael Doig. It’s easy to follow and should have you up and running in about 15 minutes.
