I have MAMP Pro Installed. I'm well aware with the advanced features of MAMP Pro I can change to different types of Hosts, but I wanted to know why my previous method would not work within mavericks. This was my usual working method in 10.8, but now with 10.9 it's a headache.

The previous method would:

  1. write a custom address with the host address:

    "#Virtual Hosts"
  2. go to /Applications/MAMP/conf/apache and open the httpd.conf file, scroll to the bottom and then add

    NameVirtualHost *
    <VirtualHost *>
        DocumentRoot "/Applications/MAMP/htdocs"
        ServerName localhost
    <VirtualHost *>
        DocumentRoot "/Users/Klimt/Sites/siteoffolder"
        ServerName clientA.local
  3. make sure the ports is set to 80, 443, 3306.

  4. reset MAMP PRO and then usually type in the URL address and it's gold from there.
