Ampps is a fantastic piece of software if you want to run a testing server but upgrading on the mac has always been pretty awkward. The first time I upgraded, back when I was a Mac newbie, I deleted all of my files by accident! Luckily I had created a backup first. The good news is Mac users can download and install the update from a compressed file so there is no need to install from the disk image again.
When a new operating system is released you question yourself. Do I really need an upgrade? How easy is it? Do I dive in or wait for the mass participation to die down? Do I research blogs to find the good, bad and ugly, will it put me off? I guess the answer is all of them. Here is my experience with my recent Yosemite upgrade on my 2-year-old Mac.
Even the tidiest of users who own a Mac may have files scattered across several folders on your hard drive. Ever tried finding a file through spotlight or even manually tried to look for a file. How much time is spent trying to organise your files to spend ages trying to find them. Thankfully fo us Mac owners this is where Trickster saves the day.
I enjoy testing and reviewing software for Mac, Linux and Windows as well as WordPress plugins, PHP scripts, Web & Browser apps, Mobile apps, gadgets, gizmos and so forth. This weeks mini-review I test drive Airfile for Mac. If you have something which you would like a review please send them to ku.oc1472193377.bewo1472193377dlrow1472193377@swei1472193377ver1472193377
Microsoft announced a few months ago that they were to introduce IMAP support for anyone with a Windows Live, Hotmail, MSN email account. This tutorial we will configure Apple Mail to use IMAP instead of the default POP. We will be using Mavericks the latest version of the Mac operating system although the settings will be the same for any Mail Client on Windows, Mac, Linux and any mobile client.
I’ve tried a few testing servers over the years but now I have a Mac I decided to use Ampps for all of my development needs. Ampps, if you don’t already know is an alternative to Xampp, Mamp, Wamp and various other web servers. When installing a web server I like to move the document root outside of the default path to prevent me deleting it and also to keep it backed up so here is a little tutorial on how to change the Apache document root in Ammps.
