If you are encountering the following issues after installing AMPPS on Mac OS X 10.8.x:

  • Loading http://localhost/ampps/ or http://localhost/ampps-admin/, nothing displays (the pages return blank)
  • Loading http://localhost/, the folder cgi-bin is displaying

Follow these steps:

  • Make sure MAMP is not running
  • If MAMP Pro is installed, run the uninstall script located in the /Applications/MAMP Pro directory (backup databases and web files first!)
  • Stop apache
  • Reset config in php
  • sudo /Applications/AMPPS/php/bin/php -c “/Applications/AMPPS/php/etc/php.ini” “/Applications/AMPPS/ampps/softaculous/enduser/install.php”
  • Start Apache
