HI Folks,

I'm on a Mac with High Sierra. Been using MAMP for years on it. I just recently installed MAMP 5.3. Every time I reboot the computer and MAMP Launches, it rewrites the httpd.conf to defaults.

I tried locking the conf file and that results in MAMP not able to launch Apache.

Does anyone know what gives?

Thanks!

Check to see that when you make changes to httpd.conf the original file is getting updated with the latest timestamp. Don't touch that file though manually, MAMP won't like it.

/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/conf/httpd.conf

 

Also, make sure you are restarting Apache at least once making your changes and before rebooting.

 

Finally, disable the Apache group start, save, re-apply group start, save and see if that makes a difference.

I have to replace httpd.conf with a fresh copy every time I reboot. I have to launch MAMP, stop servers, duplicate my good copy of the conf file, (which I keep locked so it won't get overwritten) rename the duplicate file, then start the servers again.

 

/Library/Application Support/appsolute/MAMP PRO/conf/httpd.conf

 I am not using MAMP Pro. So my path is: Applications/MAMP/conf/apache/httpd.conf

Also, make sure you are restarting Apache at least once making your changes and before rebooting.

I think this particular suggestion may have worked for me. I will let you know after I reboot again.

Finally, disable the Apache group start, save, re-apply group start, save and see if that makes a difference.

Is this a MAMP PRO thing? I don't know what group start is....

 

Thanks for our help!
