my task is to setup a MAMP webserver for our website in the easiest way so it can be managed by my colleagues without experience in server administration. MAMP PRO is an excellent solution, but some guys don't suggest to use it for serving external requests.
Could you explain why it is bad (in details if possible) and how to make it secure enough to be a full-scale and not-only-local webserver?
Is there a better solution?
There is a discussion on the MAMP website.
XAMPP developers say that one can make their product secure:
The default configuration is not good from a securtiy point of view and it's not secure enough for a production environment - please don't use XAMPP in such environment.
Since LAMPP 0.9.5 you can make your XAMPP installation secure by calling »/opt/lampp/lampp security«.
Could you comment it?
