Why does Desktop Server keep opening?

I have followed the previous course, in which zac sets up wordpress on DesktopServer. Now, i'm trying to set up wordpress using mamp, but it won't open with mamp.

Any suggestions?

Hi Kristian,

Did you make sure you stopped Desktop Server? If it is still running they both use localhost and you may also need to edit/modify your host file.

I've ran into a similar issue using Docker and Desktop Server.
