Cannot run MAMP and Local

What issue or error are you experiencing?

MAMP freezing. I found some old 2019 topics of this problem, are they still valid? Someone suggested to use Local 3.3.0 to be able to use both MAMP and Local.

When I start MAMP it freezes with these two windows open.
And no, I don’t try to use them at the same time.


System Details

  • Local Version:
    Version 8.1.0+6514

  • Operating System (OS) and OS version:
    Windows 10

Hi @jokke

Running multiple developer applications at the same time can be problematic because they fight for ports, connections, resources, etc

One way you can get around this in Local sometimes is to use Localhost as your Router Mode.

Preferences>Advanced>Router Mode>Localhost

Localhost mode does have a couple of limitations like only supporting HTTP and not allowing for the enabling of Live Links, but it may allow you to use MAMP simultaneously.

Hi @Nick-B, and thanks for the tip.

I set the Router Mode to localhost, but it did not help, still freezes on startup.

And for the record, as I already stated earlier: I do not try to use MAMP and Local at the same time.
I got XAMPP running on port 80 and 3306, but the thing is, I have a ton of sites built under MAMP, so it would be really nice if I could get it working again.

Have you reached out to MAMP for help? I’m not really sure what else to advise to debug their product.

If you have most of your sites in MAMP and do most of your work there you can try fully uninstalling Local using the steps below. If you do have any sites in Local you’ll want to back up and save those first.
