As you may know by now, MAMP is a really useful instant webserver for your Mac that requires practically no setup or installation, you run the app and click “Start” – yes it’s that simple.

I use MAMP a lot for local web development and really like it, it’s probably the easiest way to develop locally with something like WordPress. I was going to write a full article on setting up MAMP and WordPress, but TUAW beat me to it! So rather than re-writing the wheel, let’s take a look at TUAW’s simple walkthrough on getting WordPress setup under MAMP:

Happy web devs, enjoy your local WordPress setup.
