    All Unix commands run while OS-X is booting up are run as root and have the potential to significantly alter the behavior of your system.

    Its probably worth a mention that the idea of Mamp is a "Development Environment". It wouldn't be advisable to host a live website with it. Anyway... it wouldn't be cost effective at all.
