Create a host using the command line
You can create a host using the command by using the following steps
- Quit MAMP PRO.
- Open Terminal.app ( /Applications/Utilities ).
- Enter the following line into the terminal and hit enter:
/Applications/MAMP\ PRO.app/Contents/MacOS/MAMP\ PRO cmd createHost testHost /Applications/MAMP/htdocs2
This will create a host with the name “TestHost”, with a document root of “/Applications/MAMP/htdocs2”. MAMP PRO will briefly open, and a host will be created. MAMP PRO will then quit. When you open MAMP PRO you will see your new host.
