Sync AMPPS with multiple machines

Here is a roadmap to establish AMPPS with Dropbox:

  • Download and install the latest version of AMPPS. In the Programs folder will include the folder “var” and “www” are created. In the database files already come “var” folder and “www”, all individual files of your website.
  • Create a folder under your Dropbox account “AMPPS” on it. Move the folder “var” and “www” in your AMPPS folder to your Dropbox folder. The folders are so removed from your Application folder. With the following commands, create a symlink from the Dropbox folder, and the folder AMPPS. To do this to you Mac Terminal.

cd ~ / Dropbox / AMPPS

ln -s ~ /Dropbox/AMPPS/var /Applications/AMPPS/var

ln -s ~ /Dropbox/AMPPS/www /Applications/AMPPS/www

To see if everything is linked correctly, you can check this yet:

cd /Applications/AMPPS

ls -ll
