The acronym MAMP refers to a set of free software programs commonly used together to run dynamic web sites on servers running the Apple Macintosh operating system, Mac OS X:

To be precise, it is an open source Web platform built upon Mac OS X.

Though originally only Apache was integrated into Mac OS X, the combination has become popular because of its low cost and because of the ubiquity of its components, and Mac OS X 10.5 and above ships with PHP and is MySQL-ready. When used in combination they represent a solution stack of technologies that support application servers. Other such stacks include Apple Computer's WebObjects, Java/Java EE, and Microsoft's .NET architecture.

In general use, MAMP refers to a packaging of these technologies for development use. This is a development environment, and not intended for general production use as a webserver. All MAMP technologies run on base Mac OS X outside of their sandbox.

The MAMP installer contains two versions: MAMP (freeware, released under the GNU General Public License) and MAMP PRO (contains additional features, retails for $59 USD).[1]
