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.

"Be sure to remove any existing MAMP, WAMP, IIS or XAMPP installation before installing DesktopServer."
