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:

thanks
Pete

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...

Thanks!
Mark

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MySQL 5.7 is outdated for some time now, moving to version 8 is required.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

I wrote to customer support and got the answer "This will be added in MAMP PRO 7 later this year."
Meatime I have to use Xampp - which is not bad and maybe I stick to that.

Hello, hi, Top of the Morning to you,

Pretty late to the MAMP party here.
Could really do with MySQL 8+ for Joomla 5
Feels as if the DJ has run for the hills and people are moving on…
Please prove my gut feeling wrong!
Any one at home?

It is dissapointg to see Mamp Pro is still useing MySQL 5. I need to install MySQL 8.2.0 community version (https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/) myself into my mac manually to use with mamp.

This is the best thing I can find and it seems:
https://documentation-4.mamp.info/en/MA ... index.html

- out of date
- incomplete
- frankly way over my head!?!

Are there any “half way idiot proof” instructions online how to get PHP 8 + working with MAMP 6.8.1

Greatfull for any pointers/tips joining the dots... :?
