Access MAMP sites over Local Area Network

Project Overview


I spent a bit of time looking for a useful answer to this.

The problem:

I want to share a website published using MAMP on my local machine with other people in the office. I have more than one virtual host set up in MAMP so simply using the machine’s IP address and port (usually 8888) won’t work.

The solution:

  • In the settings for the site, change the IP address to the local machine’s IP.
  • Give it a port number that isn’t the default.
  • Click Apply.
  • That should be it!
  • From another device on the same network type http://{MAMP machine IP}:{port number you set}


I nearly got there with this article: but needed to change the port number to make it work.
