I have been running MAMP Pro 3.05 successfully in Yosemite up to DP4 on a partition that was a clean install of Yosemite.

I now have run the installer for DP5 over my Mavericks install, and now that MAMP Pro install will not start Apache. It says to check the logs, but I don't see anything pertinent.

I'm assuming that since this is a pre-existing install, something in its config is wrong for Yosemite's Apache.

MAMP Pro 3.0.7.3 should run fine on Yosemite, but after installing it on a brand new machine, I experienced the same problem.

In my case, the problem occurred because I had defined Additional Parameters for my virtual host that contained quotes. By default, Yosemite keyboard settings are set to convert straight quotes to smart quotes ("no-cache" became “no-cache”. Depending on font and font size, this may not be immediately obvious). This made Apache crash, even when the host was disabled.

To change this settings, go to System Preferences -> Keyboard. In the Text tab, uncheck Use smarts quotes and dashes.
