Removing MAMP favicon using standard, free MAMP version

Annoyingly, MAMP will override your favicons. This can be annoying when you really need to quickly identify tabs!

To stop this behavior find the following file:


And then comment out the following line:

#Alias /favicon.ico "/Applications/MAMP/bin/favicon.ico"

That’s it!

This works for the standard, free version of MAMP — which is what I use.

Hat tip to Tim Neil who first discovered this while using MAMP Pro.
