hi i am a total newbie to mamp pro. i posted a thread on mamp.info and haven't received any replies yet and read in a thread that macrumors forum is more active. so i am giving it a go here. anyway, i have downloaded the 14 day trial version but after reading the mamp forum and user manual i still can't do it. i want to create a virtual host where i can access a site i am developing from two computers (imac and macbook). i also want to be able to work on the site even when i am not at home (accessing the site via the internet using my macbook). could someone kindly show me how to do this? i have a site, say, abc.com and the files are stored in an external network hdd (buffalo linkstation) under a folder called "abc" (mamp pro doesn't seem to let me select a folder from external hdd as the disk location under host tab). using mamp (not mamp pro), i can access my site at localhost:8888/abc from my imac but i can't access this site with my macbook because the db is saved in my imac. can this db file be saved outside of application/mamp/db? for example save it in my external network hdd under a "db" folder? basically, i want to achieve the below with mamp pro: 1) access websites in development using either my macbook or imac. and 2) make these websites accessible on the internet or locally right now, i have multiple websites in development using mamp and can only access it using imac. if i can set up mamp pro to do the above, i'll buy the serial number. so hopefully someone can kindly provide step-by-step instructions on the set up before my 14 day trial expires. thank you in advance!!
