I’ve been using this little tip for so long now that I forgot how to do it, until I showed someone here at work how to do it. You can use the standard console application that ships with OS X to view any type of log file. Its not obvious how to do this since there is no interface to add a new log file, but once you figure it out, it couldn’t be any easier.
- Open up a terminal.
- cd ~/Library/Logs
- ln -s /Applications/MAMP/logs MAMP
- Open console.app and you will now see MAMP in the ~/Library/Logs tree
