How can I add additional PHP versions to MAMP

The current version of MAMP that I have only has php 5.2.17 and 5.4.4. I need 5.3.X. Is there a way to add additional versions that can be selected in the MAMP interfaces php preferences? This is for the free version of MAMP, not MAMP PRO.


Found a quick fix in the MAMP forums.

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.


Edit - if the PHP version you require isn't in the PHP folder, you can download the version you require from
