Prepare Our Environment

In this lesson, we begin setting up our local development environment by taking a look at several packages available for Windows, Cross-Platform Operating Systems, and MAMP.

I'm going to take you through the process of setting up MAMP, but these settings will apply to whichever application you choose to use.

After installing MAMP, we will:

  • Configure the proper ports for Apache and MySQL for easy local development
  • Set up the directory out of which we’ll host our projects
  • Define the version of PHP that we’re using
  • Test our installation to verify that it’s configured correctly
