MAMP Pro & MySQL 8.0?

Post by mampsupportmod »

I'm hearing MySQL 8.0 has dramatic performance increase. Hoping this becomes available in the next big release of MAMP Pro.

My hosting provider only supplies mySQL 8 now so without MySQL 8 support in MAMP I am no longer able to mirror the live environment on localhost for development and test.

Anyone know why MAMP does not support MySQL8 or if it is likely to be supported in the near future?

Until then I have to find some alternative solution to MAMP :cry:

Hi everyone,

With MySQL 5.7 EOL coming in November 2023, an update of MySQL in MAMP PRO is kind of unavoidable..? Does anyone know if an update is scheduled (e.g. MAMP 7?) and if so, when? We also need to phase out MySQL 5.7 and our team is all on MAMP PRO. Would be a shame to have to let go of that...

It's a shame MAMP Pro isn't reacting to this since it's something they really should pick up.
MySQL 5.7 is outdated for some time now, moving to version 8 is required.

I've used Mamp for over a decade but unfortunately I am now going to have to ditch it and move to another solution
To not have v8 by now is in my opinion pretty poor as a lot of servers are not even supporting 5.7.x now
I'd expect this from a free piece of software but from a paid solution
I have about 50 - 60 clients on WP Engine and they are upgrading all their servers soon and can't leave it until the last minute & hope an update comes out to test it locally before I deploy live
