Can anyone here confirm that this

It’s on sale now, (plus another $5 off if you tweet about it) so I’m curious.

is it a good app? You can test your websites on this app locally, correct? Is it a good price for what it does? Does it deliver what it promises?

Thanks for your support

Check out MAMP it runs Apache MySQL and PHP on your Mac and the standard version is free.

I think that its a bit overkill for previewing RapidWeaver sites. I use Apple Server… https://geo.itunes.apple.com/us/app/macos-server/id883878097?mt=12&at=11l8IQ

Another suggestion would be to use virtualbox (or VMware Fusion $$). Then just install linux and setup a LAMP server (linux Apache MySQL PHP). While it isn’t a canned solution like their software, that is basically what they are doing. Virtualbox is free along with all other services once you install linux and use it’s repositories.

Thanks for this tip! I already have server app and I didn’t realize I could accomplish this with server.app.

thanks for the tip! but seems little complicated at the moment. I will try server.app and see if it accomplishes the goal.
