The information in this wiki hasn't been maintained for a good while. Some of the projects described have since been deprecated.

In particular, the "Ushahidi Platform v3.x" section contains information that is often misleading. Many details about this version of Platform have changed since.

This website is an extraction of the original Ushahidi wiki into a static form. Because of that, functions like logging in, commenting or searching will not work.

Props to Woody for hand-holding and instructions on this.

There are 3 main ways to install Ushahidi 3.x on Mac OS:

Vagrant is generally recommended for Ushahidi 3.x because it allows you to isolate your environment, and you don't have to manage a *AMP (Apache-Mysql-Php) stack on your Mac.   Homebrew is recommended over Vagrant if you're going to develop other websites locally on your Mac. Mamp is last on the list of recommendations.
