So I was working on a wordpress template requiring frequent Sass builds and synced my installation to local MAMP installation. And like always got the 403 Forbidden error and as usual started searching for the solution and quick fix. I am lazy and this seems to happen every time with me. I ended up on From there I remembered that there is something similar in the Main window of MAMP. So I am just documenting this here for future use,
  • Opened MAMP
  • Select host to edit
  • Clicked on Extended tab on the right
  • Set “AllowOverride” from “All” to “None”
