I purchased MAMP Pro a couple of days ago, but after having successfully installed it and everything was ready to go, I noticed the following message on the localhost starting page:
You don’t have permission to access / on this server.
Simple Solution to 403 Forbidden starting page
After much searching, I found a simple solution to the problem:
- Open MAMP Pro
- Click on “Hosts”
- Click on “Extended” (UPDATE: Only if you are using MAMP Pro 3.0.6)
- Check “Indexes”
- Click “Save”
- That’s it! Reload your localhost starting page and it should work properly.
Enjoy MAMP Pro and like & share this post if you found it helpful!
