I paid and downloaded DesktopServer on my Mac, it says I can't install since I have web server running. I am using MAMP

but not working locally as I should. What should I do next? Remove MAMP?

Hi Jennifer,

You will need to stop the services MAMP has running by opening it's control panel and pressing Stop Servers.

Hope that helps.
