Hi Tom,

I got the same problem. But it took me a while to figure it out.

You need to download Additional PHP version https://www.mamp.info/en/downloads/

Make sure you choose the right version. I chose version 7.0.15 for my mac

There are 2 ways

Unzip, then copy that folder php7.0.15. to

1 - MAMP/bin/phpMyAdmin folder, then on MAMP app click Preferences, on PHP tab choose the version that you downloaded.


2 - Copy the folder in the same directory as localwp.com, then go to the web browser and click the link of that folder.

I hope it helps.
