Shortly after the release of WordPress 3 I offered a solution to broken page navigation conceivably caused by upgrading from version 2. Recently, in an attempt to fix a long-standing and seemingly unrelated issue, page navigation reared its head once more.
Whether using XAMPP or MAMP to provide a local server environment I prefer to have the respective Apache and MySQL servers start when I login.
With XAMPP I use a launch daemon and this works perfectly. With MAMP it’s even easier as there’s an option to Start Servers when starting MAMP in MAMP’s preferences. I only need to add MAMP.app to my Login Items and MAMP’s servers will be up and running after logging in.
