Screencast Tuesdays Series: MAMP

We’re excited to launch a new blog series called Screencast Tuesdays! It will be hosted by myself or another Headway staff member. Each week we’ll be focusing on a particular issue, topic, etc. that we’ve seen either on Twitter or the forums. We’ll then make a screencast and publish it here on Tuesdays!

The first one is centered around MAMP/WAMP, a local development tool that allows you to setup a local development instance of WordPress (or any web application running on PHP) and Headway.

If you have any suggestions on the topic for next week, please let us know.

Spread the word!

  1. Thank you so much for this tutorial, i was one of the folks asking :).

    Sweet. One question.. if you already have a site that is established could you expand on how to get that site into your local server?

    Do I need the dev version of backupbuddy in order to migrate all the sites im currently working with or just the single license.


    • You should just do the same process you would do to move BackupBuddy from one server to the other, only this time you’d do it to your local dev machine/server.

    • I use Dropbox because I have multiple machines (iMac, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air) that I develop on, so using Dropbox gives me the capability to always be working with the latest code (minus the database).

      • i followed your tutorial, but for some reason ( i am using dropbox) i get an database connection error.

        I am wondering if you could shed some light.

        Basically i am attempting to work out how to copy a live sites database, and then work on a development site using that database, ready for an upgrade later..

        Hop that makes sense. M

  2. AJ… there’s a message overlaid on the video indicating it is a private video and says if I have permission to view it that I have to log in at Vimeo.I’ve got MAMP/Wordpress/Headway 3.1 installed locally, but can’t seem to run the visual editor, so was hoping I could catch a clue from the video.  🙂
