I used brew to install it

Set my MySQL port in MAMP to 3307 so theres no conflict
Then in your wp-config just use this

Code: Select all

define( 'DB_HOST', '127.0.0.1:3306' );

Thanks for posting this suggestion. Just saw it now. Will need to put my thinking cap and do some tinkering.

Also looking at the Joomla path!

Off the top of my head I guess that this workflow is just plugging MAMP into another MySQL data base management system that is not “managed/maintained” inside MAMP. And that once the connection has been made/re routed it should be business as usual inside MAMP just with a working up to date version of MySQL with Wordpress, Joomla what ever?

I am just moving over to Laravel Herd for local Server and DBEngin for local database.
https://herd.laravel.com/ + https://dbngin.com/

Both are free in the basic versions which should cover most of the needs if you want to develop for WP or Joomla locally. The setup is straightforward, even if a little less convenient, simply because mamp came with everything in one package.

There are tutorials on how to setup a simple environment with php + mysql + phpmyadmin. you should be ready to switch in 1 hours max.

This really helped me


Really like Herd but still on the fence. Not really doing any of this on a pro level more like semi pro :D
