Any open source Web platform made up of these software programs and built upon macOS is a MAMP. MAMP is based on a similar software bundle for Linux called LAMP. Various "AMP" packages exist for many different operating systems.
Though originally only Apache was integrated into , MAMP has become popular because it is free and because of the ubiquity of its components, and 10.5 and above ships with PHP and is MySQL-ready. When used in combination it supports application servers. MAMP may also be used with popular CMS programs like Drupal for setting up a local development environment.
