Basically it seems MAMP is only allowing 2 versions of PHP to show up. Quick fix, rename the folders you're not bothered about using, for me this meant adding an "X" to my /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.4.10_X folder. Now 5.2.17 and 5.3.20 show up in the mamp prefs.
This local server environment offers a free version and a paid PRO version. The paid version allows you to separate the projects you have worked on, as well as display settings such as Joomla, Drupal, or WordPress. However, the free version is complete enough to mount the local web server. Well, to download it please go to the download section of the website. Once there, select the version for Windows which at this moment is 4.2.0. After the download is complete, please start installing it as any Windows program.
Most currently, I am going bonkers in my head having been buried the entire day in code (not my natural thing). Therefore, I decided to mimic the live system to be able to handle this issue live here without needing to go to the live system for every test every time. The live development systems are my Wampserver 3.2.3 amd MAMP Pro 4.2.0 (I am using them in comparison to their individual installation and configuration) in which I keep and develop my PHP code for the Mazimoi Obesity Documentation System Suite (Mazimoi ODS Suite) version 126.96.36.199 (version 8 is a major upgrade within a few days to come). 2b1af7f3a8
