Mamp Vs Bitnami Mamp Stack

Recommended Posts

Hey all--


As I went to install MAMP 2.1.1 on my new machine, I thought I'd check to see if it was available in the app store. There, I found BitNami MAMP Stack 5.4.9, which I've never used before. What's the difference? Are they made by the same developers? Have I been using an out-of-date version, by using MAMP 2?


Best, and happy new year!

MAMP is primarily an acronym. MAMP 2.1.1 is the name of the product which, unfortunately, uses the acronym for its name (compare that with WAMPServer). BitNami is some company that seems to release their own version of a MAMP (the acronym) stack; that version number probably corresponds to the version of PHP included with it.


So they're two different things from two different groups, though they provide more-or-less the same end result.
