Well, as mentioned in a earlier post I switched from MAMP to AMPPS.

Of course, how good anything might be, nothing works out of the box. Luckily, Ampps is fairly easy to set up.

Open up the main window and Click PHP


Next, click PHP Extension,


In the following screen, check:

  • ctype.so
  • mcrypt.so
  • openssl.so
  • tokenizer.so
  • iconv.so


Apply, than close and restart Apache.

Get a drink, you have completed another conquest. Or you just fixed your ampps, whatever your imagination lets you live up to ;-)

You might want to configure a database, thats nothing easier as in the webpanel clicking on create a new database. Thats hardy missable, so I won’t cover it here.

Thanks for reading, if you have any other questions, feel free to post a comment!
