I have been using MAMP for a few years now, I just updated to macOS Catalina, it seems that macOS Catalina is blocking permissions to the Documents folder among a few others (such as Downloads and Desktop).
I have already checked the permissions on these files with terminal and that doesn't seem to be the issue.
Additionally I have
The server gives me this error:
Forbidden You don't have permission to access /Users/xxx/Downloads/index.html on this server.
The Apache log gives me this error:
[Wed Oct 09 12:31:30 2019] [error] [client ::1] (1)Operation not permitted: file permissions deny server access: /Users/xxx/Downloads/index.html, referer: http://localhost/Users/xxx/
It seems to be an issue with the way macOS is restricting permissions to certain directories. In the settings panel under Security and Privacy there are additional settings for file access, I have granted MAMP those permissions, in addition I have also went inside the MAMP folder and granted Apache's httpd the same permissions, still no luck.
Does anyone have a work around? This is causing me such a headache in development.
